We can honestly say that we don’t know what this means:
Christie Vilsack, you refused to appear on stage with me in several debates & have refused all my debate proposals. I’ll be in Ames Sept. 22— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) August 24, 2012
We do know that the King campaign refused to take part in the Ames debate unless there were no questions from a panelist or members of the public and tickets were not made available to the general public. That fact was made clear in a letter sent to Christie Vilsack by the debate sponsors on Wednesday.
Does this mean you will debate, @SteveKingIA? Does this mean you’ve reconsidered the proposal from the Ames Tribune, Iowa State University, Ames Chamber of Commerce, and the League of Women Voters?
We look forward to a reply, preferably from @KingForCongress since it’s a violation of House ethics code to comment on political matters from an official account.
