BEND, OR -- The Democrat challenging Congressman Greg Walden wants to debate the Republican several times before the November election.

 

Jamie McLeod-Skinner made the request in person, during a recent parade in the small town of Joseph. She approached Walden's car as he rode along the parade route (pictured above), and said, "I’d like to challenge you to at least three debates within the district; I’d be happy to debate you in every single county, if you’d like." He responded with, "I look forward to a schedule." McLeod-Skinner continued, "I’d like do southern Oregon, Central Oregon, eastern Oregon, as well, so everyone can hear us debate. Would you be willing to debate me?" Walden replied with, "I look forward to debating you."

 

She followed up that exchange with a written request to meet in debates and town hall-style events over the next several months, specifically asking about an event in Umatilla County on August 31, and two in October, in Jackson and Deschutes counties.
