Broun to debate Saxon...Just not in Athens

After initially declining to debate his Democratic opponent, Congressman Paul Broun is scheduled to participate in the October 26th Atlanta Press Club debate.

Broun had previously said he would not debate [Bobby]Saxon, but his campaign spokeswoman Jessica Morris and Atlanta Press Club Executive Director Lauri Strauss confirmed that he would appear at the Atlanta Press Club debate.

Broun still plans on skipping the Athens Press Club debate.

Now I don't want to be nit-picky here, but if I lived in the 10th district, I'd be more than a little upset at my congressman accepting an invitation to debate in Atlanta while refusing to debate inside his own district.
