Tim: Include all candidates at forums, debates

I’ve been disappointed to learn that two of the four members of the congressional race have been excluded from several of the scheduled congressional forums and debates.
George Hendrickson and Ron Wieczorek have worked hard to qualify for the ballot and are running on their convictions, which South Dakotans deserve to hear. The sponsors clearly have the right to invite who they choose, but I think they should invite all candidates who qualify for the ballot.
I am glad to hear the South Dakota State Fair Congressional Debate is now considering the addition of Ron Wieczorek and George Hendrickson on Sept. 2.
These are important opportunities both for candidates to address the people and for voters to learn what we stand for. I’ll be at every debate no matter who is invited. https://timbjorkman.com/
