Barr Challenges Loudermilk to Series of Debates

Barr Proposes Four Lincoln – Douglas Style Debates

Former Congressman Bob Barr (GA-7), a candidate for the Republican nomination for the 11th District in Georgia, today sent a letter to his run-off opponent and former Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk, challenging him to a series of four debates in advance of the July 22nd Run-Off election.

Barr’s Campaign Manager, Derek Barr, issued the following statement in support of the proposed debates:

“Policy and issues are very complex, including topics such as Obamacare, the federal budget, and the Constitution, and they deserve more debate and discussion than short, one-or-two minute responses in a structured format.

Voters are looking for substance and are interested in going beyond sound-bite politics regarding the important issues impacting their lives and America. This is why Congressman Barr has invited Barry Loudermilk to join him in a series of Lincoln – Douglas style debates across Georgia’s 11th Congressional District.

The concept is simple; our campaigns will agree on a venue and date with one per county in the 11thDistrict. The two candidates will join each other on stage to discuss and debate the issues, with no artificial time-limits.

It is important that the voters of Georgia’s 11th District have the opportunity to listen as they make this important decision. All too often, campaigns focus on everything except the issues.  It is Congressman Barr’s hope Mr. Loudermilk will accept this invitation and stand before the voters to discuss the issues facing our country and our District.”
