It remains a mystery to most of us why Republicans are reluctant to appear on Iowa Press when the panel basically brings them hot chocolate and slippers. So why did Zach Nunn decline the invitation from Iowa Press to debate incumbent Cindy Axne for the job of 3rd district representative?
Because he’s running a dishonest campaign and anyone watching would believe her and not him, IMHO. Or it’s just a Republican thing now because they think it is cool to shun the press except for fake news.
The mid-term election will truly be a test of the right wing propaganda machine. Please vote if you haven’t already.
I sent an inquiry to Iowa Press a couple of weeks ago inquiring why no Third District debate? Districts 1 Bohannan v Miller-Meeks and 2 Mathis v. Hinson debated on Iowa Press and Ryan Melton in IA-04 showed up when his Republican opponent Randy Feenstra did not. This was the reply I received from IPBS:
“Thank you for reaching out to Iowa PBS. We invited candidates from all four congressional districts to participate in debates but were unable to confirm dates with each district.”
Hmmm.. unable to confirm dates… During Friday’s program with Cindy Axne, Kay Henderson shed more light on the subject:
“This year’s Third District congressional candidates were invited to debate on Iowa PBS. Republican Zach Nunn declined our invitation. Congresswoman Cindy Axne accepted.”
How could anyone expect that Zach Nunn would stand up for Iowans in Washington, DC if he can’t even debate his opponent in Des Moines, Iowa? Same goes for Feenstra.
Please watch the program and support Cindy Axne to defeat her MAGA Trump opponent. Iowa doesn’t need more Republicans. We have more Republicans than any state could ever want. We need honest representatives like Cindy Axne in Washington. You can make a donation here. Click here to get involved in Cindy’s campaign. Follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
