Colorado Springs, CO: Today, State Senator Doug Lamborn mailed, emailed, and telephoned Democrat challenger Jay Fawcett an invitation to join him at a series of debates to present their views to all the voters of Colorado’s 5th Congressional District.

With the goal of allowing the maximum number of voters to view, listen, and participate in an open exchange of ideas between the two candidates, Senator Lamborn invited Mr. Fawcett to join him at the following venues:

· Action22 of Southern Colorado debate on Saturday, October 14th, at 11:45am at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Colorado Springs.

· Fremont County Chamber of Commerce debate in Canon City. Open to the public and broadcast on local television. Early to Mid October.

· KVOR’s Joseph Machelli Show radio debate on 740AM in Colorado Springs from 4 to 6pm with call-in questions welcomed from the public. Mid to Late October.

· Network Television debate, sponsored by C-SPAN, with moderators to be invited from each of the network television stations in Colorado Springs. Mid to Late October.

“I hope Mr. Fawcett will accept my invitation to debate and allow the maximum number of voters to see first hand the drastic contrast between our views on the direction of our country,” stated Lamborn.

“On issues like winning the War on Terror, stopping illegal immigration, and cutting taxes and government spending, to name a few, I believe voters deserve to know the real differences between my conservative solutions and Jay Fawcett’s liberal agenda,” concluded Lamborn.
