(disclosure: posted by Stein campaign staff)
Secretary Galvin, perhaps feeling some pressure to respond in the wake of the endorsements, has finally agreed to debate Jill Stein.
Here’s the catch – he wants (and will get) a five minute debate. It’s hard to decide what’s worse: Galvin’s refusal to debate altogether, or insisting on a five minute gloss over the issues at the eleventh hour. Anyway, that’s what we got, and we’re going to take our best shot. Thanks to Jon Keller for working to set it up. Here’s our campaign’s release:
