Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has sent an e-mail asking supporters to sign a letter to rival John McCain asking him to agree to debate Huckabee before the March 4 primaries.
“Now that the race for the Republican nomination is down to just two candidates, I believe this is the time for a real discussion about our vision for the future of this great country,” Huckabee writes.
“I believe a Lincoln Douglas-style debate so that voters can better understand our views on critical issues such as health care, education, energy independence, terrorism and national security is just what we need.”
Noting that Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have recently had opportunities to “underscore the differences in their positions,” Huckabee declares: “It seems only fitting to me that Republican primary voters are offered the same.”
