Conlin to hold second "empty chair" debate


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Roxanne Conlin will hold her second "empty chair" debate Sunday.

The Democratic US Senate Candidate is running against incumbent Charles Grassley. Conlin says she is holding the event at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Arts. She says Grassley has declined to debate her.

Conlin held a similar event Sept. 19 in Des Moines.

Conlin and Grassley have appeared together for a joint interview on Iowa Public Television, and they are scheduled to meet in an Oct. 26 radio debate on WHO-AM in Des Moines. They haven't agreed to any televised debates.

Grassley spokesman Eric Woolson said Thursday that Conlin is "desperately looking for attention."
