Candidate Lutz challenges Congressman Hunter to series of debates

Debates scheduled for every locality in the district

San Diego County, Calif. (August 3, 2010) – “The people of East County deserve to compare their candidates' positions and intellects,” said Raymond Lutz, the Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress representing California's 52nd Congressional District.

On Monday, the Lutz campaign invited Republican Congressman Duncan D. Hunter and Libertarian Candidate Michel Benoit to participate in a series of eight debates. The events are scheduled throughout the district during the legislative holiday to accommodate Hunter's participation. The moderators and sponsors for these debates would be agreed upon by all campaigns. All media outlets are invited and encouraged to attend.

Benoit responded immediately, accepting unconditionally. Hunter's campaign had yet to respond within 24 hours of receiving the hand-delivered invitation.

“Hunter's been in office for 17 months, and we've yet to see him bring jobs or any resurgence to our economy – or even pass a single piece of legislation,” Lutz said. “East County residents deserve to hear all candidates' positions on issues like the economy, healthcare, energy policy and national security.

“Agreeing to these debates is the least Hunter can do,” Lutz said. “Many people didn't realize they weren't voting for Hunter's father in 2008. The fact is, he's just not his father, and these debates should help the public know who is actually running.

The proposed debate schedule is included below:


Thu, Aug. 12, 6:30 pm, Grossmont College Stagehouse Theatre, La Mesa
Mon, Aug. 16, 6:30 pm, Borrego Springs High School, Borrego Springs
Thu, Aug. 19, 6:30 pm, Poway Performing Arts Center, Poway
Wed, Aug. 25, 6:30 pm, Viejas Tribal Facilities, Viejas/Alpine
Mon, Aug. 30, 6:30 pm, Ramona High School, Ramona
Thu, Sep. 2, 6:30 pm, El Capitan High School, Lakeside
Mon, Sep. 6, 6:30 pm, Serra High School, Tierrasanta area
Thu, Sep. 9, 6:30 pm, Granite Hills High School Gymnasium, El Cajon

This schedule has been proposed by the Lutz Campaign and may change.
