Democrat Senator MIA In Final Debate

Kay Hagen MIA.

Kay Hagan a No-Show for Final Senate Debate With Thom Tillis

Quote:


With North Carolina Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan a no-show, Republican challenger Thom Tillis on Tuesday night faced an empty chair for their fourth and final debate in the tight race Ė and she faced some energetic needling from the state Republican Party.

In what amounted to an hour-long interview by two reporters and voters that aired on a Time Warner cable channel, Tillis answered questions on topics he and Hagan had already battled over, including the Ebola crisis, the Islamic State (ISIS), and Hagan's absences from Armed Services Committee hearings, Breitbart reports.

Hagan had declined to participate in advance of the debate, but the North Carolina Republican Party sent out hourly updates counting down to the non-event anyway, posing questions they wanted her to answer, Breitbart reports.

Noting that Hagan's last event for the day was in Wilson, N.C., at 4:30 p.m., North Carolina Republican Party Executive Director Todd Poole issued a statement noting: "Google Maps says it takes 53 minutes to get from Wilson to Raleigh," Breitbart reports.

"Even if they want to stop at Parker's for delicious BBQ on the way, that leaves plenty of time for Sen. Hagan to participate in tonight's debate," he chided.

"If Sen. Hagan isn't planning to come to Raleigh for the debate, she ought to at least tell the people of North Carolina what is more important than talking with them about the important issues facing our nation," Poole added, going on to call skipping the debate "a particular insult to the North Carolina press."

A North Carolina Senate debate turned into a one-man roundtable, when Sen. Kay Hagan did not show up Tuesday night. Haganís campaign says it was not one of the original three debates agreed upon by both camps, leaving her opponent Thom Tillis to answer questions on his own.
Tillis scheduled it on his own. I heard he lost the debate, too.
Thanks from RNG

That makes it a press conference.

It's funny what corruption will do to politicians priorities. When Maddow lambasts a liberal for not showing up....

If the shoe were on the other foot I'd be saying the exact same thing.

In fact I really don't consider any debate in which there are more candidates than the Republican or the Democrat to be "real" debates since most of the time third party candidates aren't even invited.

When you state you will debate then back out, before the debate.. kind of says a lot.

She participated in three debates previously. She had never agreed to the fourth debate.
