LETTER TO WOLFSON—SCHEDULE DEBATES
SPENCER CAMPAIGN: AS MANY DEBATES AS POSSIBLE!
September 14, 2006 -- Spencer for Senate today released a letter to the Clinton campaign calling for “as many debates as possible” and requesting face to face meetings to schedule the debates.
The text of the letter, which is addressed to Clinton strategist Howard Wolfson and signed by Communications Director Rob Ryan, follows below:
I was happy to read that Senator Clinton has agreed to debate John Spencer.
Since Election Day is only 54 days away, I feel it is imperative that we meet right away so we can discuss where and when the debates will take place.
I am sure you and Senator Clinton agree that it will be the voters of New York that will benefit by having as many debates as possible between now and November 7th. To date NY 1, “Meet the Press” and the League of Women Voters have all expressed interest in hosting debates and I am sure a number of other organizations and media outlets plan to do the same.
John Spencer firmly believes that debates of this nature are the basis of a healthy democratic process and he would be happy to rearrange his schedule to accommodate as many debates as possible in the weeks ahead.
Please call me at 914-909-2684, so that we can work together to make these debates a reality.
Robert H. Ryan
