A Libertarian Wants the Tedisco Spot in a Congressional Debate

ALBANY—If Jim Tedisco won’t do the debate at WMHT, state Libertarian Party chair Eric Sundwall says he will.
Capitol Confidential reported yesterday that the Assembly minority leader has declined an invitation to a debate on WMHT, noting that he has agreed to do four other debates, the first of which was yesterday.
Susan Arbetter, the host of New York NOW, said Tedisco’s people declined the invitation yesterday. She is “disappointed” but notes that the debate, scheduled for March 19, will still go on.
“This format allows the candidates to speak to each other, as well as allows the reporter to ask follow-up questions pertinent to the individual candidate:  At the town hall meeting, only questions that could be asked of both candidates were permitted, so one couldn’t ask ‘How many jobs have you created in India versus New York State?’ or ‘How come you won’t tell us how you would have voted on the stimulus package?'”
