Frank Murkowski is afraid to debate Fran Ulmer on a one-on-one basis!
An article in the Anchorage Daily News, (Oct. 26), and a televised debate at the AFN convention makes it very clear.
At Bartlett High School, he bullied the students by rearranging the students' pre-arranged debate situation to include Libertarian Billy Toien and Green Party Candidate Diane Benson. At the AFN convention he also included Republican Moderate Ray Vinzant and Alaska Independence Party candidate Don Wright, in addition to Toien and Benson.
Without permission from the hosts, Dan Saddler recruited Toien, Benson, Vinzant and Wright.
It is sad that the GOP plan worked, because the uninvited candidates used up most of the time allotted for the debate, and Murkowski did not have to meet Ulmer one-on-one in these debates as was intended by the host organization.
