At 5:00 on Friday candidate for Governor Ralph Northam announced he would agree to 3 debates with Ed Gillespie who had previously accepted invitations to 10 debates. Gillespie responded:
“Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam’s long-awaited response of only three debates is insulting to voters across the Commonwealth. With so many serious issues at stake, Virginians deserve to hear the clear differences between us. The Lieutenant Governor debated his primary opponent five times, so why debate so few times in the general election? We should respect the debate organizers and more importantly the voters.
Northam has also agreed to 7 ‘joint appearances’, whatever that means.
