Tim Graney has asked Ron Paul to debate the issues so that voters can decide which candidate will best serve them in the 14th Congressional District. Ron Paul has not responded.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Where are you Congressman Paul?
Katy, Texas - January 12, 2009 - Tim Graney of Katy had his staff contact Ron Paul to arrange a series of candidate debates. Graney has been traveling the district, meeting voters, fundraising, and gaining momentum since announcing his candidacy nearly two months ago.
As a former small business owner and Conservative Republican, Graney points out "...the people of District 14 are excited for new and true representation! As we've travelled the District, the number of people who have expressed their interest in seeing a debate between me and Paul is astonishing. Both my supporters and his want to see this debate."
"...the people of the district have grown tired of his antics and self promotion. This District is made up of good, hard-working folks who want to see results. Grandstanding is not going to put Americans back to work. They don't want career politicians who advance their personal political careers at the expense of their communities," Graney said.
While the Paul camp still cannot confirm their participation in the Graney-Paul debates, one can't help but wonder how Paul can find time to challenge Ben Stein to a debate, but not have time for a debate that impacts the people of his district? When asked about this issues, Tim Graney responded, "...it's what the people of District 14 have come to expect. We've seen this song and dance before when Paul had no time to hold a Health Care town hall in Katy, or anywhere in the district. However, the good doctor did find plenty of time to throw a campaign fundraiser and birthday bash for himself in Galveston during the summer recess, which was attended by many from outside the district and as well as outside of Texas."
Incidentally, Mr. Graney took his time during that summer recess to attend several Health Care town halls held by other Representatives around the Houston area. This time around, it seems that Paul is more interested in a debate with Ben Stein to garner national attention for his own agenda, than he is in a debate that the people of the 14th Distrit want to see and ultimately have a say in. A debate on the issues that affect them most . . .creating jobs and putting Americans back to work."
