With Congress in recess Berryhill challenges Cardoza to attend previously canceled debate.
The League of Women voters scheduled a debate between Congressional
Candidates Mike Berryhill and Dennis Cardoza for October 4th but the debate was canceled when House Speaker Pelosi called the House back into session. Now that the Speaker has recessed the House and members are free to return to their districts, Mike Berryhill calls on Dennis Cardoza to attend the debate next week.
The debate was originally scheduled for October 4th in Merced but was canceled when Cardoza declined stating that he would be in Washington because Congress would be in session. Now that the Speaker has released members to return home to campaign the debate should continue as planned.
"The voters of the 18th District deserve the right to question candidates about their plans and hold them accountable for their records. I urge my opponent to join me Monday at the League of Women Voters debate for a discussion of the issues challenging our district," said Berryhill.
Berryhill continued, "having failed to hold any town hall meetings over the last year it's important that Mr. Cardoza attend these debates and explain to the people why he supported Obamacare, cap and trade, the failed stimulus and any number of bills that have killed jobs and hurt working families."
