Coleman says Walorski dodging public debate

Democratic congressional candidate Lynn Coleman says incumbent Jackie Walorski is dodging a public debate before the election.

Both are running for U.S. Representative in Indiana's Second District, but have yet to debate in public.

Walorski recently agreed to a radio debate in Wabash hosted by a former republican state representative.

Coleman says Walorski is purposely avoiding the public in this race.

"They want to do a "debate" in Wabash County that segregates from the rest of the district. That's not fair and I think the press needs to call her out on it and get her to answer as to why she chose to do that," said Coleman.

We reached out to Walorski's representatives for comment.

"Congresswoman Walorski looks forward to participating in the WNIT televised forum covering the northern portion of the district and the radio debate covering the southern portion of the district."
