Blum Proposes Twelve Debates, Finkenauer Responds

Blum, Finkenauer

The Congressman who represents Dubuque has proposed a hectic debate schedule ahead of this fall’s election. According to our coverage partners at KCRG-TV, 1st District Congressman Rod Blum wants to debate his Democratic challenger, Abby Finkenauer, a total of a dozen times between now and Election Day. That works out to a debate almost every ten days. Blum says he’s already accepted invitations from two other local TV stations for debates that would happen on each of the next two Fridays. Finkenauer’s campaign has not said whether they’ve also accepted those invitations, but did say they’ll work with Blum’s staff to establish a debate schedule over the coming weeks. During Blum’s first run for re-election two years ago, he initially called for ten debates with opponent Monica Vernon. That number eventually shrunk to just a single debate, held about two weeks before that 2016 election.
