Express News editorial board knocks Ciro Rodriguez

SAEN:

The limited time frame makes it imperative for the candidates to get their message to voters quickly.

Rodriguez is claiming the short window for campaigning is a "Republican scheme" to disenfranchise voters.

Instead of complaining, Rodriguez should make good use of his time to get his message out. The candidates knew the runoff would be on a short fuse and pushing the election closer to Christmas would further inhibit turnout.

The pair had agreed to a Dec. 1 debate. Regrettably, Rodriguez has since balked, claiming a scheduling conflict.

If Rodriguez hopes to represent the district in Congress, he should be willing to debate Bonilla on the date both chose.

A debate offers free name ID for Rodriguez. Considering that Rodriguez needs the debate much more than Bonilla does, he should really be willing to debate Bonilla.
