Debating the debates: Eckersley and Long trying to work out details

In this morning’s edition, the Springfield News-Leader recounts the time line for a series of 7th District debates between Billy Long (R) and Scott Eckersley (D).

Shortly after the primary results were in, Eckersley proposed a series of 10 debates with Long, saying in a news release (PDF): “The debates would be held on the steps of each county courthouse throughout the 7th district starting ten weeks from the November 2nd election.”

Long’s Web site does not mention the debates, but in a release given to the News-Leader, the Long campaign said the Eckersley campaign was not returning calls. The article quoted Eckersley’s campaign saying that the two sides were going to meet Friday.
