Hyde-Smith has backed out of two previous debates, citing her schedule in Washington D.C.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel is challenging appointed Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith to a debate on the heels of the Senate’s early recess.
“Cindy Hyde-Smith can no longer hide behind the veil of Washington to save her from facing the Mississippi voters,” McDaniel said. “We know she’ll be here in-state, so there’s no reason she can’t stand on a stage and defend her stances.”
Hyde-Smith has backed out of two previous debates, citing her schedule in Washington D.C., even though she has managed to make it back to Mississippi for a rally in Southaven and for an NRA banquet in Jackson, not to mention the elitist fundraiser she attended on a Monday in Houston, Texas.
“We’ll debate Cindy Hyde-Smith anywhere, anytime,” McDaniel said. “We know she’s got some time on her hands now. She calls herself a rock-solid conservative. Why not stand on a stage and prove it?”
