Candidates Scheurer and Brooks Announce U.S. Senate Debates

Candidates Scheurer and Brooks Announce U.S. Senate Debates

(Trenton, NJ) Today Jason Scheurer, the – pragmatic – Libertarian nominee for U.S. Senate and Darryl Mikell Brooks, the Poor People’s Campaign candidate for U.S. Senate, announced they would be participating together in a series of town hall meetings/debates during their U.S. Senate candidacies.

The town hall meetings/debates were organized because both Scheurer and Brooks believe the public should know where their candidates stand on the issues of importance to them. Both candidates believe they will not be invited to any debates between Lautenberg and Zimmer either by the media or their respective campaigns, assuming that any debates take place at all. Frank Lautenberg and Dick Zimmer have been invited to participate in the debates and town hall meetings.

Scheurer remarked: “I challenge both Mr. Lautenberg and Mr. Zimmer to debate our economic and immigration policies. I must question their credibility and credentials to speak to these issues especially considering our current state of affairs. I would hope they think enough of their constituencies to appear with us on stage around the state to explain their stand on the issues”

Some of the debates and town hall meetings will be moderated by the Hall Institute; the NAACP; and Conservatives with Attitudes. Scheduled to date:

September 23nd, 5:00-7:00pm, State House in Trenton;
September 28th, 7:00pm, Molly McGuire’s in Clark;
October 1st, 8:00pm, Grabbe’s Seafood Restaurant in Westville;
October 10th, 11:30am -1:30pm, “Meet the Candidates” at Sussex County Community College;
