First Darlene Senger vs Bill Foster Congressional Debate Set For WTTW On October 23

Looks like do-nothing Congressman Bill Foster will finally come out of the shadows and face his hard-charging Republican opponent Darlene Senger in a public debate.  While Foster continues to refuse to 'face the music' by having actual voters ask questions of the candidates in an open forum, at least Senger and the public will be able to call Congresman Bill Foster on his do-nothingness in Washington DC.

The first confirmed debate for the 11th Congressional District race is a candidate forum Oct. 23 on WTTW

The forum is scheduled to air live at 7 p.m. on WTTW-Channel 11, the public television station out of Chicago. The participants are incumbent Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, and opponent state Rep. Darlene Senger, R-Naperville.

The candidates will be interviewed live by a moderator who is yet to be determined, WTTW Manager of Media Relations Julia Maish confirmed in an email. 
The forum will also have no studio audience, although that could change, Maish said.
“We’re happy to do the debate with WTTW,” said Anthony Barry, Senger’s campaign manager. “But the constant issue is we want to do open debates in front of the voters who can ask questions. That has been the battle with Congressman Foster from the get-go.”
