    Warner agrees to campaign debates, forums

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Mark Warner has agreed to appear in eight joint public forums with Republican rival Ed Gillespie.

    Of those eight appearances, two of them will be televised debates.

    The first debate will be sponsored by the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 7. The other debate is sponsored by the League of Women Voters and American Association of Retired Persons. It will be held Oct. 13 in Richmond.

    The other appearances will be in Newport News, Virginia Beach, Danville, Roanoke and northern Virginia.

    Maybe the Chamber can schedule it at NCC. Just think what they could charge with a sitting U.S. Senator as a headliner with Gillespie. Tony Howard could probably double the outrageous ticket prices that leave everyone but the wealthy on the outside looking in! Are the proceeds from the Foust/Comstock debate going to charity or to the non-profit Chamber and the well to do members?

    I’m reluctant to say this, but “Good for Senator Warner!” Too many politicians find excuses not to debate when they are significantly ahead in the polls. That’s especially true in this case when you have a very-well known incumbent and a much-lesser known challenger. I’m not sure that Warner gained my vote, but he certainly gained some of my respect.

    Thank you.
