The Oz statement said the Republican would agree to the debate under three conditions: if the moderator explained to the audience that Fetterman was using a closed-captioning system, if the practice debate did not include real debate questions and if the debate was 90 minutes instead of 60.
“If those three reasonable requests are acceptable to the Fetterman campaign, then we accept the debate invitation on October 25th” the Oz campaign said in a statement, continuing to slam Fetterman for agreeing to only one debate.
The Fetterman campaign got ahead of the Oz attack in its statement.
“We said from the start that we’d do a debate, which John reiterated very clearly again last week. Enough distractions, it’s time to talk about the issues,” Rebecca Katz, senior adviser to the Fetterman campaign, said in the statement.
Katz went on to hit Oz on his response to questions about whether he would support an abortion ban that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) proposed this week.
