Conservative Tim Smith Calls on IN-03 Candidates to Debate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, February 21st, 2024

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Tim Smith, Republican candidate for Congress, is calling on Republican candidates running for Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District to participate in debates ahead of the Primary Election in May. No debates have been scheduled for the Primary Election, despite early voting beginning in less than 50 days.

“The next representative for Indiana’s 3rd District has big shoes to fill,” Smith stated. “Voters deserve to hear directly from the candidates about their plans for Indiana before they decide who is the most conservative, qualified person running. The inaction on scheduling debates is unacceptable.”

Smith called for candidates to participate in two debates – one in March and one in April – to ensure voters are well-educated before early voting begins on April 9th. He also emphasized the need for voters in both the urban and rural communities of the district to hear from candidates about the important issues facing Northeast Indiana.

“Indiana’s Third District is made up of both rural and urban communities – both need to hear directly from candidates before voting begins in early April,” Smith stated.

Smith is the first candidate in the race to endorse President Trump, call for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas, and release a plan for Indiana agriculture. As the first candidate to publicly call for debates, Smith continues to reinforce his position as the thought leader in the race.

“We need serious leaders with plans to get our country back on track after the Biden administration’s failures,” Smith said. “I’m confident in my plans to secure our border, get our economy back on track, and support Hoosier farmers. It’s time for all candidates to get on a debate stage and clearly outline their vision for the future of our nation.”

In addition to calling other candidates to debate, the Smith campaign has also sent correspondence to WOWO News/Talk Radio, WANE 15, WPTA 21, WFFT 15, and the Journal Gazette requesting the media outlets host a debate.
