Angie Craig continues to avoid debates in an attempt to hide her true policy positions from Minnesota voters.

The latest evidence is Craig’s decision to cancel her appearance at the Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce debate, originally scheduled for October 10(less than a week away)!

Today, the Dakota County Regional Chamber – a business organization of which even Craig is a member – announced that it has been forced to cancel its debate due to Craig’s refusal to participate in the event.

“It’s telling that Angie Craig is altogether skipping great and friendly opportunities to debate the issues Minnesota is facing, rather than talking to voters to defend her out-of-touch liberal views,” said Lewis campaign manager Jack Dwyer in response to DCRC Member Update this news. “For Angie to dodge the Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce debate – especially when Craig’s entire premise for her candidacy has been based on her ‘business credentials in the boardroom’ is an insult to Minnesota voters who deserve to know what she stands for.

“Jason will continue to meet with voters and looks forward to sharing his positive vision for Minnesota with folks across the 2nd District.”
