Valadao awaits opponent’s debate RSVP  

Hanford, Calif. – One day after Congressman David G. Valadao issued a formal debate challenge to California 16th Congressional District resident TJ Cox, the Cox campaign ignored the challenge to participate in two televised debates in English and Spanish.

“Congressman Valadao has already invited Mr. Cox to debate in both English and Spanish and eagerly awaits his response,” said Valadao for Congress spokesman  Cole Rojewski. “TJ Cox should explain to voters why he’s taken over $110,000 from Bay Area liberals who want to take our Valley’s water and why he was only able to muster $1,000 in donations from the Congressional District he’s running in.”
