Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate in response to “Struggling” Sean Duffy’s refusal to debate his Democratic opponent in prime time-something Duffy DEMANDED in 2010.
Now, it’s too bad that “Struggling” Sean Duffy has a do-nothing record of coddling Wall Street and voting against the economic security of Wisconsin’s north woods. And it’s too bad that he doesn’t want to explain his “struggling” comments to a wide audience, or his comparison of seniors buying health insurance to them buying garden tools.
But this election is about more than personal political gain for Sean Duffy, who has done pretty well for himself and his family in Washington. This debate is about the rest of the 7th Congressional District, who deserve to hear from Duffy outside the protection of his Tea Party town halls.
“Struggling” Sean Duffy demanded a prime time debate in 2010, when he was a mere reality tee-vee star. But by ducking the exact same debate in 2012 he shows that he is something less than a D-list tee-ves star-he’s-just another typical Washington politician out for himself.”
