Rivera issues debate challenge
George Rivera formally challenged state Sen. Angela Giron to a public debate Saturday.
Giron responded, saying she sees no need to debate him right now.
“This is not a typical election, it’s an election to undo the 2010 election,” she said in an emailed response. “I have no problem comparing my record to anyone’s, especially Mr. Rivera’s, who is so out of touch with Pueblo’s needs. This is not two candidates running against each other and at this time and I see no need to debate him. But if a neutral party puts together a forum, I will consider it.”
Rivera said it’s not a matter of if, but when, he wins the special recall election against Giron scheduled for Sept. 10.
