Ben LangeINDEPENDENCE, IA — In the spirit of bipartisanship, U.S. congressional candidate Ben Lange today proposed a debate compromise with Congressman Bruce Braley involving an uninterrupted ‘morning conversation’ to be broadcast on KWWL Channel 7.

Lange and Braley have committed to two debates thus far, but Braley has declined to debate Lange on network television. Lange has accepted two invitations from KWWL Channel 7 and KCRG Channel 9, both of which Braley has declined.

"At a time of great challenge and consequence, Iowans deserve to see and hear their candidates discuss the issues," Lange said. "In a spirit of bipartisanship, I’m today proposing a compromise with Congressman Braley to join me on KWWL Channel 7’s widely viewed ‘Today in Iowa’ show for a morning conversation. I hope Braley will accept this compromise and help set an example that people from different parties are still willing to put aside childish things and work together for the good of Iowans."

KWWL has offered to host Lange and Braley on their widely viewed ‘Today in Iowa’ show for an uninterrupted 20 minute conversation with no time frame on answers. KWWL has also reaffirmed their commitment to host "a 1 hour debate on prime time Saturday night any night before the election," which Lange has also accepted.
