Start the debates...Maybe?
Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan (D) says he's ready to start debating his opponent for the Democratic nomination for governor, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley. "I am ready whenever," said Duncan, who trails O'Malley in the polls and fundraising. "I say just tell me when and I will be there."
The two candidates have appeared at joint forums, but have yet to engage in a more formal debate. The two campaigns haven't even begun to discuss if and when such events will occur. But Duncan is hoping that community groups or Democratic organizations will set one up.
"I am a Democrat. I believe in elections and not coronations," said Duncan, who believes a debate will help his campaign gain traction. People need to know what the choices are."
Hari Sevugan, an O'Malley spokesman, said the mayor and his running mate Anthony Brown look forward to scheduling debates "at the appropriate time."
"Martin and Anthony look forward to a reasonable number of debates sharing their vision for Maryland," he said.
