KGW and the Oregonian have cancelled a debate in a couple weeks, because the Wehby campaign wouldn't commit.
She talked about it with Lars Larson.
"They had set a specific deadline and we were still working around when they pulled the offer. That's my understanding. Again, the campaign does all that, but we were still negotiating."
Wehby now has proposed three more forums involving Oregon Public Broadcasting, KOIN TV and the Portland City Club.
But Merkley's campaign spokeswoman Lindsey O'Brien says Merkley had accepted a series of debates six weeks ago and Wehby has ducked, dodged and turned down the traditional Senate debate in Portland.
She says they'll look at their campaign schedule, but right now they're focused on what's already on the books.
