Paul Sadler, Democratic nominee for the United States Senate, announced Thursday that he is stepping up on his listening tour across Texas. Sadler said he hoped voters would get the opportunity to hear the platforms of both candidates through debates. Tea Party extremist Ted Cruz, however, has agreed to limited debates and has spent considerable time attending fundraisers with lobbyists in Washington, DC.
Sadler has accepted six debates, including one sponsored by the Spanish-speaking network Univision, whereas his opponent has committed to only two.
“While I’ve been doing this,” continued Sadler. “He’s up in Washington now hobnobbing with lobbyists doing fundraisers in Washington. He hasn’t even been elected yet.”
