Kerry challenges Bush to debates

by on March 13th, 2004

Kerry, already engaged in a running exchange of negative ads with Bush eight months before the November election, planned to deliver the challenge at the site of the historic Abraham Lincoln-Stephen Douglas debates in Quincy, Illinois.


Kerry challenged the Republican president to monthly debates on the “great issues” of the day, including the war on terrorism, the loss of U.S. jobs and the plight of Americans without health care.

“2004 can’t be just another year of politics as usual,” Kerry said in the text. “The challenges we face are just too grave and too great.”
