Barger for US Senate

"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows that the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?" - James Madison, Federalist #62

Republican Marvin Scott and Libertarian Al Barger Challenge Evan Bayh to a Debate

The following is a joint news release from the Barger and Scott campaigns

October 15 - INDIANAPOLIS – Republican Senate candidate Marvin Scott and Libertarian Senate candidate Al Barger are calling on Evan Bayh to debate the important issues facing Hoosiers.

“There are too many issues deserving an open-forum discussion between the candidates and it is time we stop all this wrangling and hold a debate,” said Marvin Scott. “There is no more authentic way to reach the voters than through debate. It is the best way for us to discuss issues such as the War on Terror, job creation, tax-cuts, the cost of health care, energy prices—just to name a few.

"Mr. Bayh is avoiding answering any kind of questions from anyone," said Al Barger. "The office of United States Senator is one of the most powerful elected positions in the nation, yet he refuses to discuss his record in any public format except the controlled comforts of a Senate office and an editing booth for his television and radio ads—completely inaccessible from the Hoosiers who pay his salary."

Evan has been unwilling to meet his opponents in open debate before the voters and Hoosiers deserve better.

"He's not just avoided any debate. He has refused even to fill out questionnaires under his new 'no questionnaire policy,'" remarked Mr. Barger.

"Al Barger and I have released our schedules so we can decide a date beneficial to all candidates," said Marvin Scott. "Everywhere I go people ask when there will be a debate. I want a debate, Al Barger wants a debate, and Evan Bayh has repeatedly said he wants a debate. Once again, we are waiting on Evan Bayh to match his words and deeds."
