Congressman Flake Ignores Wil’s Debate Challenge

Flake Also Refuses Independent Debate Invite

Phoenix, Arizona – 49 days ago, Wil Cardon’s campaign sent a letter to Congressman Flake challenging him to a head-to-head debate.


But wait… there’s more.

Congressman Flake flat out refused a debate invitation from the AZ Republic/KPNX-Channel 12 – a news organization that had plans to report on and televise the debate statewide.

Why is Congressman Flake Running Scared?

It’s become evident that Congressman Flake is afraid to discuss his past of lies, flip-flopping and supporting a liberal agenda in DC.

But his refusal to debate Wil Cardon hurts Arizonans. 

In the past several months, there have been numerous candidates forums across the state. Wil has participated in many of them. Congressman Flake, however, has ducked many of them, sending a surrogate to read a letter instead. Now that the race has become so competitive, Wil wants a head-to-head debate with Congressman Flake. Unlike a candidates forum, this kind of debate allows for the two principal candidates to interact with each other – it’s an important difference that allows voters to contrast the candidates.

Arizonans deserve to know all they can about the candidates to make the best decision in August. But, it seems Congressman Flake disagrees.

    Dont worry Wil, there will be plenty of time to talk about how the business you ran got busted by the feds for hiring illegal aliens.

  2. Love how Cardon is still trying to pretend Van the Man doesn’t exist. Except when Wil is threatening to beat him up

  3. Hackbarth too. Cardon loves to quote Hackbarth when attacking Flake, why wouldn’t he want him on stage?

  4. Why won’t Flake debate him? Is scared of getting caught in a lie again?

  5. I hear when they debate there will be ICE agents in the audience, just to make Cardon sweat

  6. Conservative American says

    Flake co-authored, along with Chicago Democrat Luis Gutierrez, the defeated “STRIVE” amnesty act which was co-sponsored by such Democrat notables as Zoe Lofgren, the queen of illegal immigration, and then U. S. Congressman Rahm Emanuel. It was congressional Republicans who saw to it that Flake’s bill didn’t pass. So Flake can’t take the high ground in this race regarding illegal immigration.

  7. And right after Flake sponsored it, Wil Cardon gave him almost $5,000. Oh, and Flake never was busted for hiring illegal aliens.

  8. Conservative American says

    And Jeff Flake has the distinction of having been removed from the House Judiciary Committee by his own party for “bad behavior”.
