Blakeslee, Laird agree to five debates
June 30, 2010
The two candidates advanced after the June 22nd primary from an original field of four candidates.
Blakeslee accepted the offer from Laird to hold at least one public debate in each of the five counties–Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Santa Cruz, and Santa Clara–represented in Senate District 15.
Laird challenged Blakeslee to debate in a letter, saying in part, “The voters of the 15th District deserve more than thirty-second campaign ads and twice-a-day attack mailers on how either of us would deal with these problems.”
Details for the debates are forthcoming.
