8th District congressional candidates battling over final debate

DFLer Rick Nolan is accusing Republican incumbent Chip Cravaack of reneging on a deal for a 90-minute debate on the Iron Range, days before the election.

The Nolan camp put out a news release early Monday morning stating that the Cravaack campaign requested Debate Minnesota reduce the time of the final debate from 90 minutes to 60 minutes.

The Cravaack campaign says it never agreed to 90 minutes and that it planned to revisit details of Virginia debate after last week’s debate in Cambridge.

The Nolan side said it will not agree to 60 minutes, that 90 minutes was the deal and that Nolan will be at the debate regardless of whether Cravaack attends.
