麻州州長候選人Sonia Chang Diaz陣營叫陣辯論 Maura Healey陣營不置可否

             (Boston Orange 波士頓報導) 麻州州長候選人陳翟蘇妮 (Sonia Chang-Díaz)叫陣競爭對手奚莉(Maura Healey)64日前做3次電視轉播的現場辯論,未獲回應,競選陣營今(28)日發聲明質疑。

               陳翟蘇妮的競選經理Joshua Wolfsun在聲明中指奚莉閃躲辯論,既是對麻州選民來說的一件壞事,也和她早年的立場不一致。201441日,奚莉第一次競選麻州總檢察長時,她就挑戰對手在選舉投票日前,至少每月辯論一次。2018年的州長選舉初選,民主黨也在6月的民主黨大會之前舉行過至少3次,有人主持,候選人親自出席的現場辯論。陳翟蘇妮這次要求辯論,也只是依往例形式而已。

               Joshua Wolfsun稱,民主黨的州長候選人不應該懼怕站上舞台,和其他候選人辯論真正的議題。有太多事情會受牽連影響,選民們應該得到更清楚瞭解的機會。

            在聲明中,陳翟蘇妮陣營稱發出要求辯論信後,犀利陣營次日就回覆了,但通篇回應未做任何承諾。

 

BOSTON, MA - State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz’s campaign for Governor is responding to her Democratic opponent Attorney General Maura Healey’s refusal to commit to three live, moderated debates prior to the party’s convention on June 4. 

Joshua Wolfsun, Chang-Díaz’s campaign manager, issued the following statement

“The people of Massachusetts deserve a governor who will respect the democratic process, not expect a coronation. The Attorney General’s move to dodge committing to three debates before the convention is bad for the voters of our state — and inconsistent with her past positions. On April 1, 2014, when she was first running for Attorney General, Maura Healey challenged her opponent to debate her ‘at least once a month’ until the election. Sonia’s call for debates also reflects the 2018 Democratic gubernatorial primary, where the candidates participated in at least three live, in-person moderated debates and forums before June.

“Our Democratic nominee for Governor shouldn’t be afraid to get on a stage across from other candidates and debate the real issues. Too much is at stake, and the voters deserve nothing less. We urge the Attorney General to show the same commitment she showed in her first race, and agree to three live, moderated debates sponsored by media organizations ahead of the convention.”

Chang-Díaz initially called for three debates in a letter she sent to Healey last week. Healey’s campaign team responded with a media statement later that day that avoided making any commitments in response to the letter.
