I challenge Deval Patrick to a one-on-one, prime time debate so that we can have a broad policy discussion focused on the key issues. Grace Ross, Christy Mihos, and Kerry Healey s participation in these televised debates has and will afford them ample opportunity to make their respective cases to the voters. Unfortunately, with four candidates on stage and limited time, a wide-ranging policy discussion has been largely crowded out. I think it’s pretty clear that either Deval Patrick or I am going to be the next governor of this state, and when people go to the polls, they deserve to know where we stand.
Mr. Patrick has never struck me as someone who backed down from a challenge, so Id be surprised if he chose to stand on the sidelines now. I look forward to hearing from him soon.
