Franklin, TN – In the absence of a traditional candidate debate, local Democrats in Tennessee’s 7th congressional district have taken matters into their own hands to organize a debate online for their candidates for US House, incumbent Republican Marsha Blackburn and Democratic challenger Dan Cramer.
Cramer, of Clarksville, previously reached out to Blackburn’s office to schedule a traditional debate, but the incumbent refused. At a July debate in Bolivar, Tennessee, prior to the primary, Blackburn’s campaign sent a proxy to appear in her stead.
