Knollenberg has been invited but hasn’t committed to attending, said Michele Hodges, president of the Troy Chamber of Commerce. Click here for the rest of the story.

Free Press Reports Peters to Attend Forum, Knollenberg Hasn't Accepted Invitation Yet
I found this at the end of an article today in the Detroit Free Press about the Lawrence/Patterson debate. Apparently Joe Knollenberg can't be bothered with pesky debates. You know, where he might actually get asked a hard question about his record and reconciling his record with those syrupy web commercials he's put on his web site. Like say maybe a question about his 0 rating from the National Breast Cancer Coalition and his horrible ranking from veterans groups, his vote against equal pay for women. I can see why Joe would rather not show up, but I think he owes it to us as a public servant to appear on stage with Gary Peters and defend his record.
