Perriello: Yes to three-way debate

Edited by Chris Graham

The Tom Perriello congressional campaign said Wednesday that it has agreed to a televised debate to which all three candidates on the ballot – including Republican Robert Hurt and independent Jeffrey Clark – have been invited.

The debate, produced by WDBJ7 in Roanoke, will allow Fifth District voters the opportunity to learn about the candidates’ positions on major issues facing Virginia and the nation.

“There is no tradition more tried and true in our American democracy than the debate. Tom looks forward to informing the voters of his record of results, as well as to engaging with the other candidates about their ideas for how to improve competitive advantage in our local economy,” said Lise Clavel, campaign manager for the Perriello campaign. “We urge Sen. Hurt and Mr. Clark to quickly agree to this debate so that Fifth District voters may be best equipped to make an informed choice in November.”
