McSally, Tillis, Gardner Call On Opponents to Accept CNN Debates

Senate races in Arizona, North Carolina, and Colorado could end up determining which Party controls the U.S. Senate, but Democratic challengers in all three of these races have been accused of being “evasive,” hiding in Chuck Schumer’s “windowless basement” or running a “bunker-styled campaign.”

Today, Senators Martha McSally, Thom Tillis and Cory Gardner are calling out their Democratic opponents, Mark Kelly, Cal Cunningham, and John Hickenlooper, for hiding from voters on the debate stage. In addition to multiple local and statewide debates, the Senators are calling on their opponents to accept invitations to national debates hosted by CNN. 

“These Democratic challengers have spent months terrified to disobey Chuck Schumer and answer questions on their records or the challenging issues voters care about,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “Senators McSally, Tillis, and Gardner are each so willing to stand by their own records and answer the tough questions, they’re even willing to debate on CNN. With just 62 days until the election, it is time these untested and unvetted Democrats stop hiding and show voters who they really are and the liberal agenda they would back if sent to Washington.”
