DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Congressman Rod Blum is challenging opponent Abby Finkenauer to 12 debates.
Blum has already accepted invitations from KWWL and KGAN/KFXA.
“To hold 12 debates, I propose we begin as soon as possible and schedule the first two this month, KWWL on the 20th and KGAN/KFXA on the 27th," Blum said.
Blum's campaign says they will work closely with the Finkenauer campaign to organize the debates, as well as reach an agreement on the terms and structure of the debates.
Finkenauer released a statement saying, "I look forward to debating the important issues at stake in this election... We intend to spend the coming weeks establishing a debate schedule that works for both campaigns and gives voters the opportunity to hear from both candidates.”
The dates of the other ten debates have not been announced.
