BOISE, IDAHO — U.S. Senate nominee Paulette Jordan challenged Republican incumbent senator Jim Risch to four town hall debates before Election Day. 

In a letter delivered to Senator Risch and his campaign today, Jordan wrote:

“I am writing to respectfully request you join me for four town hall debates in October.

We are facing an unprecedented existential crisis with respect to our physical and economic health as a consequence of the deadly spread of the coronavirus. Voters deserve to hear from us directly before choosing a vision for how we recover from it and restore our economy. Leadership cannot go unchecked, and voters must have the option to participate in our democratic process.”

Jordan and Risch have a single debate scheduled on October 13 via KTVB. Jordan and her campaign proposed four town hall-style debates in Boise, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Falls and Twin Falls to be scheduled at the senator’s convenience. 


Paulette Jordan’s message is “People First Policy,” emphasizing health care, economic recovery, stewardship of land, and increased federal fiscal discipline and accountability.  She is endorsed by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and EMILY’s List.
