    That article doesn’t actually say that the 3 candidates will take part. This one has more perspective on the issue.

    Yes all 3 have been invited. It seems the Montana Newspaper Association has been good over the years in inviting all candidates on the ballot. In 2006 incumbent US Senator Conrad Burns was off on a fund raiser and you had Jon Tester and Stan Jones debating an empty chair. Conrad Burns lost the election that year, in part, many think because he cared more about raising money then speaking on the issues.

    • I wish that would happen more often. My US Congressman has not appeared at a public debate or forum in the last two elections but he keeps getting reelected and it is driving me nuts.
