“Cincinnati’s WCPO-TV, and WXVU, have asked” former Gov. Ted Strickland (D) and Cincinnati Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld (D) “to participate in a televised debate, at a site and in a format to be agreed upon by the two campaigns.”

“While Sittenfeld was jumping all over the WCPO-WVXU proposal,” Strickland made it clear “there will be no debates with Sittenfeld.”

Strickland: “This primary is going to be over in a relatively short period of time. … I intend to focus my attention, my time, on [Sen.] Rob Portman (R). … I am not going to allow myself to be distracted by anything like that.”

His campaign said it would “respond the same way” if it got additional requests from other outlets. (WVXU)
