At a press conference on Wednesday, Wayne Winsley accused Rosa DeLauro of ducking debates.
“The president of the United States has to debate his challenger, one on one, at least three times,” said Winsley, according to the New Haven Register. “Is the Congresswoman of the Third District of higher stature?”
DeLauro’s campaign manager said the congresswoman isn’t hiding.
“There is absolutely no ducking of Mr. Winsley. We are ready to debate, we are ready to do the forums,” Jimmy Tickey told the New Haven Register.
