Politically Speaking: That's a definite 'No' on King-Hubler

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

There will be no debate in Sioux City involving the Iowa 5th District
congressional candidates. The League of Women Voters today completely
cancelled the Oct. 9 debate, after incumbent Republican Steve King
wouldn't come off his no-debate position. King, you'll recall, is mad
at the Journal for a summer article and attacks from staff blogs (this
one?), and so would not agree to participate in a debate hosted by the
Journal and the League of Women Voters. Journal officials agreed to
back out of the debate sponsorship if that would help King decide to
take part, but when he kept with the 'no' answer, the league cancelled
it altogether, even though Democrat Rob Hubler was ready to take part.
