Politically Speaking: King's year to debate?

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

In recapping his list of controversial statements earlier this week,
Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King created an opening. King told
the Downtown Sioux City Rotary Club members that he always knows what
he says, that he speaks with unvarnished directness in order to start
a dialogue on important issues. Rob Hubler, the Democrat who's running
to unseat King, pounced, again. Hubler has previously challenged King
to a debate, and used his 'starting a dialogue' comments as yet
another opening to raise the debating topic. In prior congressional
runs, King has contended he wouldn't debate the Democrats who have
opposed him because they weren't legit candidates. Hubler is looking
to be the most imposing candidate to date -- he'll raise more money
than either Paul Shomshor did in 2002 or Joyce Schulte in 2004 and 2006.
