Jim Barksdale Challenges Senator Isakson to Six Debates Across Georgia

JIM BARKSDALE CHALLENGES SENATOR ISAKSON TO SIX DEBATES ACROSS GEORGIA

ATLANTA – Investment manager Jim Barksdale, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, today challenged incumbent U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson to a series of six debates to discuss economic issues that matter most to Georgians to be held in each of the state’s major media markets (Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Macon and Savannah). The debate challenge comes after a SurveyUSA poll shows that Jim has narrowed Isakson’s lead to single digits.

“I believe voters across Georgia need to hear directly from both major party candidates in Georgia’s only statewide office on the ballot in November,” said Jim. “While we may disagree on the issues, I hope that we can agree voters across Georgia stand to benefit by getting the best information they can heading into the voting booth to choose their next U.S. Senator.”

Text of the letter is below.

Dear Senator Isakson,

In the past two weeks, our nation witnessed two very different visions for America’s future unfold at the conventions.

I am writing to invite you to discuss the economic issues that matter most to Georgians in a series of six debates in Georgia’s major media markets (Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Macon and Savannah) over the next fourteen weeks.

I believe voters across Georgia need to hear directly from both major party candidates in Georgia’s only statewide office on the ballot in November. While we may disagree on the issues, I hope that we can agree voters across Georgia stand to benefit by getting the best information they can heading into the voting booth to choose their next U.S. Senator.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and prompt response.

Sincerely,

Jim Barksdale
