Pittsburgh Candidates Kept Out of Debates

While a Libertarian and Independent candidate for NJ Governor having been having quite a bit of luck getting into at least some of the televised debates, the same cannot be said for minor party candidates in Pittsburgh’s mayoral race.

From the Pittsburgh Observer-Reporter:

Two third-party candidates for Pittsburgh mayor say they’ve been unfairly excluded from two televised debates.

Independent David Tessitor and Green Party candidate Titus North said alternative points of view are being silenced in the debates being taped Sunday by the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel and on Nov. 4 by WTAE, the city’s ABC affiliate.

Only Democrat Bob O’Connor and Republican challenger Joe Weinroth will participate in those debates.

Jay Ressler of the Socialist Workers Party also is on the ballot.

He, too, wasn’t included in the debates.

All five candidates have been invited to a debate on PCTV, a city-run network that appears on Channel 21 in Pittsburgh.

All five candidates also will participate in non-televised debates on Tuesday and again on Nov. 3.
