Republican candidates hoping to take on liberal Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow in November may soon be having a debate.
Sandy Pensler has arranged and accepted a debate on July 6th, the campaign announced today.
The event would be a part of Tim Skubick’s “Off The Record,” a long running political TV show in Michigan that Skubick has hosted for decades.
Pensler, in a press release Tuesday afternoon, says he is looking forward to letting voters have a chance to see the two candidates face off.
“While my opponent has been grandstanding on this issue, I’ve been working behind the scenes to secure a date and effective statewide forum for the candidates to talk about the issues and show our differences to Primary voters,” Pensler said.
Pensler is a business turn around artist who rescues failing companies. He is also an economist and professor. James is a businessman and Iraq War Vet. Stabenow is a radical liberal trying to obstruct President Trump, and Michigan Republicans want her gone.
The campaign has heated up recently, with Pensler hitting the airwaves blasting James for his 2015 donation to a liberal Detroit area Democrat who supports sanctuary cities.
James responded to the ad by calling Pensler a “desperate liberal.”
The latest poll in the race shows Pensler beating James with likely Republican primary voters by 10%, 36% to 26%.
The election is August 7th.
