Republican women to hold forum for US Senate candidates today

in Uncategorized by

The remaining Republican candidates for U.S. Senate will be at a forum today in Tallahassee in an event sponsored by the Florida Federation of Republican Women. George LeMieux, Connie Mack and Mike McCalister are confirmed as participants. The event – which is sort of like a debate – will be at the Hotel Duval in downtown Tallahassee. “Our debate will not be like the debates we’ve come to know in recent years, rather recreated as an in-depth job interview of five realistically potential winners against Bill Nelson for Florida’s most significant federal job,” Fedderation President Cindy Graves said. “While some voters may have enjoyed the combative nature and sound bites of the recent presidential debates, our leaders often found the format to be a distraction from the issues. As committed grassroots leaders we have no need to be entertained. We prefer to be informed.” Each candidate will talk – without the others – to the 150 audience members, and then they’ll reconvene for closing remarks.
