The Cynicism of Ben Jealous

Ben Jealous Only Wanted One Debate

All of the spin from Ben Jealous about wanting multiple debates was hogwash.

Hogan campaign manager Jim Barnett released the following statement on the debate negotiations:

“The governor very publicly accepted two debate invitations. If the Jealous campaign wanted more than one debate, they could have taken yes for an answer. But they self-evidently did not want more than one debate. Instead, they requested to meet and at the time of that meeting, to our amazement and disbelief, they offered up the idea of just one debate and there was never any request for more than one debate. We accepted their offer.”

Red Maryland also obtained emails from the Hogan campaign showing that the Jealous campaign only wanted the one debate.
