Video: Scott Surovell Debates Empty Chair as Republican Opponent Refuses to Show

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Last night in Occoquan, Del. Scott Surovell (D) attempted to debate his Republican opponent, Jerry Foreman, in their race for the 36th State Senate seat being vacated by long-time Sen. Toddy Puller (who has endorsed Surovell). Unfortunately for the public, the Republican candidate (Foreman) simply didn't show up. Interestingly, Foreman's campaign manager Shannon Duffy Daniels DID somehow manage to show up, along with members of the Prince William County Republican Committee -- but no Foreman himself. I'm told the Republicans in attendance even went so far as to distribute flyers attacking Surovell and listing his home address, which is not cool. Furthemore, individuals with questions for Jerry Foreman were told by his campaign they would only answer questions "offline." Is this the type of person voters in the 36th district want (mis)representing them in the State Senate. Nope, didn't think so.
