Warren Challenges Brown To Accept Local Media Debate | Talking Points Memo

After Sen. Scott Brown declined a debate invitation Tuesday from the Kennedy Institute, Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren is challenging Brown to a debate that her campaign says should fit his standards: a nonpartisan, local-media sponsored debate. Brown had requested that Vicki Kennedy — Sen. Ted Kennedy’s widow — promise not to endorse throughout the duration of the campaign. When Kennedy refused, Brown declined the invitation. Brown had also objected to MSNBC sponsoring the debate; Brown’s campaign manager told TPM that they preferred local media to “out-of-state cable networks with a reputation for political advocacy.”
