Press release from Jason Welch, the GOP state Senate candidate in the 31st District:
The Welch Campaign calls for Senator Tom Colapietro to debate the issues and stop the negative campaign tactics. “Voters are concerned about the economy, jobs, and the ever growing state budget deficit”, Jason Welch said. “They deserve to hear ideas from the people who are running for elected office, not insinuation and innuendo about someone’s personal life.”
Welch went on to challenge Tom Colapietro to a debate on the issues that concern the voters in the 31st district. “Senator Colapietro has been in office 18 years and should have a good handle on the issues and should be well prepared to debate them”, Welch said.
The Welch Campaign has already agreed to the request by the Chamber of Commerce to participate 3 debates in October, but the Colapietro camp has yet to respond. “I would like to think that an 18 year incumbent would not resort to negative attack ads but, instead, stand and defend his voting record.” Welch stated. “I look forward to a civil and vigorous issue based debate in October.”
