Democrat nominee for Congress blasts incumbent for pulling out of debate

September 15th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Heather Mizeur, Democratic nominee for Congress in Maryland’s First Congressional District, today rebuked her opponent, Rep. Andy Harris, for backing out of their only scheduled debate after promising he would participate.

Mizeur and Harris had agreed to a debate October 26 at Cecil College, but Harris pulled out Wednesday after debate organizers decided not to include a third-party candidate who has done no campaigning and has no evident support.

“This is a big disappointment, because people deserve to hear from the incumbent and his only serious challenger before casting their votes,” said Heather Mizeur, candidate for Congress in Maryland’s First District. “It’s unfortunate that my opponent has gone back on his commitment to debate, although not surprising since he also broke his promise not to seek a seventh term in office.”
