Three cheers for Sen. Orrin Hatch for not caving in to the call for more debates.
Hatch is not avoiding his constituents. He has already debated his opponent twice and a radio debate is scheduled on KSL. He and his opponent have appeared together on many separate occasions, giving Utahns additional opportunities to compare the candidates side by side.
Since the beginning of 2012 Hatch has made more than 100 public appearances in Utah, most of which were question and answer forums. Do we really need more debates? The debates I have seen give very little time for real political issue substance and only seem to provide quotes for the media and excitement for those who relish contention.
Utahns know that Hatch is not afraid to defend his record. They know that he is always willing to meet with and serve his constituents. Thanks, Hatch, for not spending more time and money on needless rehashing of already stated political positions.
