Battleground Iowa: Rathje's refusal to debate is a huge blunder

Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa

I thought I'd chime in a give my two cents on Steve Rathje skipping
the Polk County Republican/IPTV debate this coming Friday night. Not
that I was ever going to vote for this guy, but his decision to skip
the debate is hands down the stupidest thing I have ever witnessed in
Iowa Politics. Let's see none of the three candidates running for the
GOP nomination have a dime to their names. Eichhorn and Reed didn't
file April fundraising reports because they didn't meet the threshold,
and Rathje had a mind boggling $7,732.12 cash on hand. To put that in
perspective Bill Salier had over 60k cash on hand back in 2002. So
what does that have to do with the IPTV debate on Friday?
