No sign of Scott Brown in Senate debates
The scenario could repeat itself in July when radio station WGIR in Manchester hosts its GOP primary debates, and again in August, when the Exeter Republican Town Committee, the Rockingham County Republican Committee and the Seacoast Republican Women host a Republican candidates debate.
A fourth candidate, Karen Testerman, dropped out of the race Friday.Peterson said notices went out to all the campaigns in March.
A stark contrastThe fact that all the candidates in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate have yet to appear on the same stage together stands in stark contrast to the last time New Hampshire had a contested Senate primary.
“He’s playing it as if he has already won,” said David McCray, chairman of the Merrimack Business Association and a former Merrimack town councilor, of Brown’s absence from the debate schedule so far.
McCray offered Brown the opportunity to meet with the business association at a later date, but rescinded that offer when he learned that Brown had attempted unsuccessfully to schedule an editorial board meeting with the Nashua Telegraph on June 18.
Will that empty seat still be there if Brown is not?
“That’s not our game,” said McCray. “That’s grandstanding and taking away from the other candidates. But we’re not going to give him protected status if people want to make comments about him. Just because you decide not to show up doesn’t make you a sacred cow.”
