Dane Deutsch: A No Show, Again

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 31, 2014

Superior, WI — Janet Bewley released the following statement in regards to her opponent’s decision to skip the Wisconsin Public Radio Debate Wednesday night at the Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center in Ashland.

“He’ll pay to put negative and misleading advertisements in local newspapers, but can’t be bothered to show up for a debate in the Senate District’s third largest city. Not once, but twice, my opponent has backed out of debates that he had previously agreed to attend. Despite my willingness to go anywhere, at anytime, to let the voters see our differences in person, Dane Deutsch cancelled on both the League of Women Voters and Wisconsin Public Radio.

Wednesday night I was asked what Mr. Deutsch was afraid of.  Perhaps he’s afraid to defend his deceptive attack ads, or his payment of $25,000 to a Milwaukee company that made deceptive robo-calls for American For Prosperity in Arkansas.  Perhaps he’s nervous about the false robo-calls now going to people in Iron County?  Or it could be that he’s simply unable or unwilling to defend his positions to the people of the north? We will never know.

The voters in this district want more than failed Tea Party talking points. They deserve strong leadership, and someone who will fight for middle class families, seniors, students and the small businesses of the north – and someone who will show up. I urge everyone to exercise your right to vote on November 4th and help me protect our Northern way of life.”
