The Kent County Young Republicans had scheduled a debate between the two for August 30, but this week sent Will the following email [names etc. extracted]:
Ellis backed out of the debate. Says he won't debate you unless you step down as the vice-chair of the Libertarian party.
Let me know if you're interested in doing that. Otherwise, looks like Ellis is looking for excuses not to debate.
Let me know either way- if not, I have to make an announcement that he's backed out.
To quote kavips:
No one is deserving of office in these United States of America if they can't musturd up the fortitude to debate a Libertarian.Will, speaking not just as the proprietor here, but as the New Castle County Chair, LPD, go ahead and resign. Call this fool's bluff. As you said earlier, Delaware's Libertarians know who you are.
And for those of you who'd like to ask Mr. Parrott why he is so scared to debate his primary opponent, you can ask him yourself at his Facebook page.
