Opinion: Rory Reid accepts challenges



roryreid-150x150-7635559-8222033Rory Reid has accepted a pair of debate challenges issued by members of the Nevada media.

He has accepted an invitation from the statewide television show “Face to Face” with Jon Ralston to participate in monthly debates with his opponent leading up to the November election. Reid also accepted an invitation to debate Republican Brian Sandoval on the statewide “Nevada Newsmakers” show with Sam Shad.

“Just like Jim Gibbons, Brian Sandoval wants to balance the budget on the backs of our children, jeopardizing our future, and I won’t stand for it,” Reid said. “So that’s what’s at stake, and I’m 100 percent committed to the fight. I am eager to debate Brian Sandoval about the importance of strong schools for a stronger economy, and every other issue important to Nevadans.”

Brian Sandoval said on primary election night: “No more hiding. We will debate about right direction for the future.”

But will Brian Sandoval live up to his word? Or will he continue ducking debates, as he did during the Republican primary, when he participated in only one debate? Even then, he agreed with Gibbons on virtually every issue. Sandoval ducked debates on “Face to Face” and with KDWN-AM during the primary.

Reid is the only candidate for governor to offer solutions for today and a plan for Nevada’s future success–supporting strong schools for a stronger economy. For more information about his campaign or to download his plans, visit Rory2010.com.
