MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WPMI) — Tommy Battle, Republican gubernatorial challenger, has accepted Governor Ivey’s invitation to debates across Alabama. Battle wants a debate in each of Alabama’s seven congressional districts before the June 5, 2018 Republican Primary. Last week, a spokesperson for Ivey’s campaign told the AP that she is “happy to discuss her record” in debates.
“It is vital that voters have as many opportunities to hear candidates debate the issues and share their vision and plans for the state,” said Battle. “Simply doing one debate is not enough. We must have a debate in all seven congressional districts. Alabamians deserve that.”
