Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley today affirmed that he is willing to participate in the four official televised gubernatorial debates proposed by the Michigan Republican Party at the beginning of this week. Yesterday, Attorney General Bill Schuette, who has been dodging voter town halls throughout the state, publicly sought to halve the number of GOP debates.

“The gubernatorial town halls that Attorney General Schuette has been skipping have proven to be a great opportunity for voters across the state to engage with the candidates, and they show just how valuable the official debates will be for informing voters. That’s why while my campaign privately proposed seven debates to be held across Michigan, I’m willing to settle for the four televised debates circulated by the Michigan Republican Party earlier this week,” Calley said. “But by dodging town halls and now clumsily trying to cut the number of GOP-sanctioned debates in half, Attorney General Schuette is sending Republican voters a clear message that he doesn’t think their questions matter.”
