Senate candidate ready to debate

Posted by wlpo on April 11, 2016

Do you enjoy debates or are they just a waste of time? A candidate for state senate representing the Illinois Valley wants no less than four debates before the November election.

Democrat Christine Benson of Ottawa has sent a letter to her Republican opponent, Senator Sue Rezin asking to debate in Grundy, La Salle, Bureau and Putnam counties. Rezin hasn’t sent an answer publicly and Benson has asked for a response by May 1st.

Benson is a retired school superintendent and lost to Rezin in the 2012 election by less than 600 votes.
