With the primary over, the two candidates in the Seventh Congressional District are anxious to begin the battle, which is expected to be one of the most-closely watched in the country. Whoever wins will take the seat of U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, who this week won the democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.
Democratic State Rep. Bryan Lentz on Thursday challenged his Republican opponent, Patrick Meehan, to a “vigorous series of debates,” and ripped Meehan, saying he has “repeatedly ducked, canceled or otherwise hidden from debates.”
Meehan, a former U.S. Attorney, on Friday asked Lentz to accept a series of 10 debates still to be scheduled.
"In the past, Bryan Lentz has claimed he would debate me anytime and anywhere and I am happy to hold him to that commitment," Meehan said in a statement.
