Congressman Marino's Campaign Manager Admits Debate Pull-Out Politically Motivated
He Said Scheduling a Debate "Would Be Good For You [Scollo's Campaign]."
Dingman, PA - The Scollo for Congress campaign was informed yesterday
by WVIA that Congressman Tom Marino will not honor his commitment to participate in the WVIA-TV debate. Marino's camp reportedly said they could not reschedule due to unspecified 'scheduling conflicts.'
In a phone call today with the Scollo campaign, Marino's campaign
[Scollo's Campaign]" but refused to make any effort to find time for a one
hour debate. The phone call happened at 10:30am today, Thursday, November 1, between Barton and Will Sharry, Scollo's campaign manager.
"This election is too important to let scheduling difficulties get in
the way of a full debate on the issues facing Pennsylvania families
and seniors," said Scollo. "Marino should step-up to the plate and
guy in his television ads. I'm not seeing that in this decision."
