Brien challenges Casey to four debates

October 17, 2012

WOONSOCKET — State Rep. Jon D. Brien, who launched a write-in campaign after being unseated in the primary, is challenging the man who defeated him to a series of debates.
With slightly more than three weeks to go before the general election, the city Democrat is asking Stephen M. Casey to participate in four debates before Nov. 6.
Casey dismissed the offer as a desperate ploy for attention.
“The time for debate was before the primary,” said Casey. “I already defeated him in September and he’s not on the ballot.”
But Brien said he’ll go solo if Casey doesn’t show up.
He said conservative radio host Helen Glover of WHJJ in Providence has already offered to host one of the debates. Brien said he wants local radio stations WOON, WNRI and the Woonsocket Call to host the others. Managing Editor Brian DeCesare said the request has been taken under advisement.
