Jessica Morse on Tom McClintock Rejecting Tahoe Debate

Roseville, CA...Congressman Tom McClintock officially pulled out of a debate he committed to with Jessica Morse, his Democratic challenger in the 4th Congressional District race. The event was to be held in Lake Tahoe and hosted by the Sierra Business Council and North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, and would've been one of only two debates McClintock has agreed to; a non-televised debate in Mariposa County is scheduled for later this month. In response, Morse released the following statement: "Clearly Tom McClintock is not the champion of small business that he claims since he refuses to participate in a debate hosted by the Sierra Business Council and North Lake Tahoe Resort Association.




"Tom McClintock's refusal to take part in this debate does a great disservice to the community that he purports to represent. Our campaign invited the Congressman to participate in at least four debates in communities across the district. and in the past few months alone, he has avoided numerous face-to-face meetings with constituents and attempted to call a speaking engagement with disgraced White House spokesman Sean Spicer a debate – all to dodge answering tough questions about his own record. This is not the democratic tradition of dialogue and transparency that our community deserves.

"As a fifth-generation Northern Californian who is running for Congress to be the advocate and partner our district greatly needs, I welcome the opportunity to share my vision with voters. They deserve to see both of their candidates for Congress side by side to discuss their plans to protect pre-existing coverage in healthcare plans, bring good-paying jobs to the region, and stand up to special interests in Washington. It's not about partisan ideology – it's about rolling up our sleeves and getting to work for the people of this community."

About Jessica Morse
A fifth-generation Northern Californian, Jessica Morse is a daughter of the foothills. A devoted public servant, Morse spent a decade serving with the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Agency for International Development, including over a year in Baghdad at the height of the Iraq War. She is running for office to bring public service back to politics to protect our land, healthcare, and local economy.

About the 4th District
California's 4th District stretches from the eastern Sacramento suburbs to the Sierra foothills, including Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park. Incumbent Republican Tom McClintock won his first election by less than a point, and the GOP vote for President shrunk to 54% in 2016, more competitive than many of the areas won by Democrats in recent special elections such as those in Alabama and Pennsylvania.

            go back to your delusional life on your website that your imaginary fans visit. the fact that you have to bring your drivel to a website that folks actually read, as nobody reads your laughingstock website, speaks volumes about your inability to understand why you're so reviled.

    GO JESSICA. Let's give McClintock the retirement he so desperately wants (and needs). He is a New Yorker (Westchester) and should go back there.

He is such a coward. Whether he’s running away from criticism at town halls or avoiding debates; worms have more of a spine then his sorry a$$. Vote for someone that live in the area. I don’t care who, just someone that represents us.

      You must be a male pig. About as smart as one too.

      McClintock, like his childlike leader is a coward.

      Any candidate who cannot explain and justify their positions and candidacy to you does not deserve your vote. What the hell does he think is going on that he can just expect your vote, blindly? Isn't he special?

      He doesn't deserve your vote. Elect Morse!

It's pointless to debate socialists. Good call.
What's with Merita? She has that Walking Dead/Nancy Pelosi look about her and she smells like wine.

    Hilarious. I wouldn't wast my time debating the little socialist either.
    Now I get all the dems are gonna fawn over her but in reality if you really hear her speak, or talk you would know she is as sharp as a bowling ball.

    Granted Im not the biggest fan of McClintock but at least he isn't like her and mistaken as an autistic fat little boy.

    Meritta is trying to pull off the great caper IMO.

    She SUCKED at the job, was fired, so now comes back with all her LGBT/Wino's funding her and now she's back!

    She will do a horrible job again, but people need to realize it isn't about doing a good job anymore, its about spite.

    People want to vote to hurt each other not do better I guess.

      Truth. There really is no reason to vote for Merritta except for spite.
      Worst thing to happen to Calaveras that wasn't a forest fire in many years.

        Agreed.

        So our choices are Mike, he didnt really do anything or Meritta who did damage to our community.

        So thankfully we will have another old woman in a pantsuit completely out of touch with her community lose then blame everyone else.
        I mean its not like she only hangs out with her uber left friends and lives in the areas richest gated community right?
