Debates, debates, debates, debates

Apparently, Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato misses the primary, when the four Democratic and two Republican candidates met each other for forum after forum after forum. In all, the candidates appeared with each other more than twenty times.

Onorato is now calling for a repeat performance in the fall campaign. He’s challenged Republican nominee Tom Corbett to a series of FOURTEEN debates spread across the commonwealth. That works out to about one a week.

Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley tells the AP this is a “media stunt.” The Post-Gazette and Capitol Ideas have more details.
