Statement of John Adams as Mark Herring Continues to Dodge Hometown Debate

RICHMOND – John Adams, the Republican nominee for attorney general, today issued the following statement regarding Mark Herring continuing to avoid the attorney general debate hosted by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce:

“We have some serious issues facing Virginia that voters all across the Commonwealth deserve to hear directly from the attorney general candidates on. Yet, Mark Herring continues to avoid the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Debate – a debate that he participated in four years ago when he first ran for attorney general. This debate is in his own backyard. One has to wonder why he still hasn’t given the Loudoun Chamber an answer.”
In addition to the Loudoun Chamber debate, Adams has also accepted a debate invitation from the Liberty University Center for Law & Government, as well as a forum hosted by the Prince William Bar Association. Adams is open to debating in regions all across the Commonwealth should invitations be extended. To date, Adams and Herring have participated in one debate – the Virginia State Bar Attorney General Debate in Virginia Beach.
