Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney has accepted an invitation from Time Warner Cable and Townsquare Media station WNBF in Binghamton to participate in public debates between 22nd district Republican primary candidates for Congress.

Tenney says so far her main opponent Richard Hanna has refused to participate in the debate.

Tenney is also calling for debates throughout the 22nd district so that every voter will have the chance to hear the candidates.

UPDATE 4/23/14: A spokesperson for Richard Hanna says Hanna has neither declined or accepted any requests for debates at this time. Hanna's camp is expected to make an announcement about the debates soon.
