Way back on March 25th Republican candidate for state Senate in LD1, Mike Testa, sent a letter to Democratic party temporary state Senator Bob Andrzejczak challenging him to a debate “regarding the $4.5 million in school funding cuts foisted upon our district by your Democratic Party leaders in Trenton.”
At the time the Bob & Steve Show ignored the debate challenge because Testa proposed the debate be held on another radio program. It was nothing against Testa, we simply didn’t see the need in us promoting another radio program – even if we do like the host.
Well guess what? Not-so-shockingly more than 60 days later Testa has yet to get a response to his debate challenge from Andrzejczak.
Why hasn’t Andrzejczak responded to Testa in over two months? Could it be Andrzejczak no longer has Congressman Jeff Van Drew to speak for him?
Whatever the reason we want to see, or at least hear, a debate. Though we haven’t asked Testa directly we are fairly certain he would happily debate Andrzejczak any time, at any place. To that end, we have a solution – debate on the Bob & Steve Show.
We understand the fact that we are unabashedly Republican, mostly conservative and extremely opinionated might give Mr. Andrzejczak a reason not to debate Mr. Testa on the Bob & Steve Show, but we have a solution to that too.
Our solution? Simple! Considering he was once a guest on the show (Episode #005, 8-11-18) we’ll invite the state Senate President, Steve Sweeney, to co-host the debate with us. It’s a safe bet he accepts the invitation, we treated him very respectfully when he appeared on the show. And, to sweeten the pot we’ll even take suggestions for a second Democrat to co-host a debate with us from Andrzejczak.
That second Democrat could be almost anyone. Maybe Jeff Van Drew? Maybe a Cumberland County Freeholder? How about former Cumberland County freeholder Lou Magazzu? He probably hates us given all the unkind things we said about him when Bob was the Cumberland GOP chairman and Steve was the organization’s consultant. That would certainly make things fair.
How about it guys? What do you think?
