Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg, who no one will confuse with Cicero, has refused a debate next week with Republican Challenger Dick Zimmer. Lautenberg claims his schedule is full, but Lautenberg has a history of ducking debates with his challengers. During his Democratic Primary campaign against Rep. Rob Andrews, Lautenberg repeatedly refused debates until there was only one week left in the campaign.
Lautenberg likes to tout his ability to take on tough issues, so why won’t he explain himself to the voters of New Jersey?
