All candidates showing up for Tucson Public TV interviews — except Huppenthal (and maybe McCain)

by David Safier

Bunker_chicken_sm I talked with Bill Buckmaster, who hosts Arizona Illustrated on KUAT, about which candidates have agreed to do face-to-face interviews on public television in Tucson.

His answer was, everyone has said they will show up, with two exceptions. Huppenthal has "declined to take part." McCain "has not responded."

Buckmaster sent me the complete list of dates and interviews, which I have included below. The Giffords/Kelly interviews are still being negotiated, so they're not on the list.

One response to “All candidates showing up for Tucson Public TV interviews — except Huppenthal (and maybe McCain)

  1. Well, not all.

    In the very first “debate” for State Treasurer I see neither the Libertarian nor the Green Party candidate are attending, and I suspect neither were invited.

    I wonder what a further review of that list would produce in glaring omissions?
