Samuel Sutter challenges incumbent Bill Keating to multiple debates
Bristol County DA to oppose former Norfolk County DA Keating for Congress
Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter, a Democratic Party candidate for Congress in the newly configured Ninth Congressional District, announced he has submitted over 3,500 certified signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office, and he has received notification he will be on the ballot as a candidate for the Democratic nomination on Thursday, September 6.
“We turned in signatures from literally every single city and town in the district, with the sole exception of Gosnold. And, this past Saturday, I campaigned in Gosnold, going door to door,” Sutter said.
Sutter also reissued his challenge to his opponent, Congressman Bill Keating, once again calling for nine debates in every part of the district.
"I don't think I'm too
concerned." - Bill Keating. "I am very disappointed that Mr. Keating has, so far, not responded to what is manifestly in the best interest of the district.”
Sutter has already agreed to a debate proposed by the Marion Democratic Town Committee for June 28.
Bill Keating who is on records saying he welcomed debating Sutter responded saying, "I've never had a campaign where I wasn't interested in debating. I don't think I'm too concerned this time."
Rep. Keating said, however, he will not miss any votes in the present congress to make any specific debate date.
