Tea party candidate schedules debate without confirming with opponent
So, you'd think that a candidate for Congress would inform his challenger before scheduling a public debate between the two. But that's not what apparently happened when GOP challenger Ed Martin issued a press release yesterday announcing three August debates versus Congressman Russ Carnahan.

At least -- not according to Carnahan's camp.

"We hadn't heard anything about this until a reporter called yesterday to confirm the dates," says Angela Guyadeen, communication's director for Carnahan's campaign. "I don't know why Ed Martin would go ahead and schedule these debates without our knowledge. Martin loves to see his name in print and today's scam is just another example."

That's not true, says Martin's press secretary, Theresa Petry. "We sent them a letter last Thursday," she says.

Okay, perhaps, though Guyadeen says she's never seen it. But lest this devolves into a "she-said, she-said," there is another curious matter about the debates Martin scheduled. They are to be moderated by former Donnybrook host Martin Duggan -- a man who's already endorsed Martin.

his opponent. You can't make it up!

4. Guess they never heard of
Delivery Confirmation - only 75 cents more, but then you'd be giving the Government more money.

That's not true, says Martin's press secretary, Theresa Petry. "We sent them a letter last Thursday," she says.
