Shannon Campaign Implodes Early: Avoids Fall Rush

17 Jul

Shannon Tweets:

Today @SteveShannon called all TEA Partyists divisive and reckless and called on @KenCuccinelli to disavow them.

Steve Shannon Decides to Campaign Against Voters Rather Than Cuccinelli
Tertium Quids

The full release from the Cuccinelli campaign:

Cuccinelli to NOT waste reporters time with tele-conference.
Challenges Shannon to debate in person – where they can ask each other
“four questions”

FAIRFAX — After hearing of Steve Shannon’s silly, time wasting
tele-conference, Senator Ken Cuccinelli pledges NOT to do the same.
However, Ken Cuccinelli did issue the following challenge:

“Steve, last week I sent you a letter asking if you would follow up on
your pledge to debate me across the Commonwealth. As of today, I have
yet to receive a response. I will not debate you via fax, nor by
“tele-phone conference”. Pick a day, any day this weekend, or this
week, and you can ask me your four questions, and I will ask mine. The
people of Virginia deserve real substantive debates on issues they are
concerned about. You’ve ducked two debate invitations already….will
you duck this one?

Below is a link to the letter Senator Cuccinelli sent last week
challenging Steve Shannon to debates around the Commonwealth. Instead
of debating in person, it appears that Shannon’s “new” campaign team
wants him to debate via fax.

Letter to Shannon.

And then there’s this:

that he can’t run against @KenCuccinelli ?
