Officials Request Early Presidential Debate In Wyoming
There has been talk of a 4th presidential debate. The suggested location - Wyoming.
The request was made by Governor Mark Gordon, Secretary of State Ed Buchanan, and Treasurer Curt Meier. The three sent a joint letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates. They would like the debate to happen in early September.
The letter talks about the unusual climate and disruptions in 2020 as the reason for holding it so early.
“We must give voters a fair chance in an already unprecedented election, and I ask that you consider adding an additional, earlier debate in Wyoming this September,” the letter said. “This monumental election will determine the very future of our nation. The least we can do is equip voters with the facts necessary to aid them in electing the next president of the United States.”
Why Wyoming? The letter does not say. But considering the fact that this state is often passed over, due to its small population, the smallest in the nation, perhaps it is about time that something of this size happened here. Besides, most candidates never bother to stop here, and if they do it's not for very long.
The letter went on to point out that “Wyomingites who vote early deserve the same opportunity afforded to other states to hear the two competing visions for our country and make a well-informed decision when casting their vote at the ballot box — especially when one candidate has spent the duration of the campaign avoiding voters and questions from the press.”
