Congressman Frank Pallone (NJ-6) is accepting his opponent’s challenge to debate.

Matthew Montekio, Pallone’s campaign manager, issued the following statement to MoreMonmouthMusings in response to the public challenge issued by the Republican challenger earlier today:

Congressman Pallone looks forward to the opportunity to debate. The Congressman continues to travel around Monmouth and Middlesex Counties talking directly with voters about the concerns of our community.

In his challenge to Pallone, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz said that Monmouth University has indicated a willingness to host a debate.  Sonnek-Schmelz said the campaigns could find a Middlesex County venue for a second debate.

No debates have been scheduled.
