Wolf Says 'No' To All But One Debate In Governor's Race
Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is agreeing to participate in just one debate before the November election with his Republican rival, an event to be moderated by "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek.
Wolf's campaign said Wednesday that'll be his only debate. That prompted Republican Scott Wagner's campaign to accuse Wolf of being afraid to defend himself in front of Pennsylvanians.
Wagner's campaign says he's accepted more than a dozen debate invitations from TV stations, newspapers and others.
In the 2014 campaign, then-Republican Gov. Tom Corbett participated in three debates with Wolf. In their last debate, Wolf thanked Corbett for participating, and called it "a great Democratic exercise."
The debate to be moderated by Trebek is Oct. 1 at the annual Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry dinner in Hershey.
