The Culver/Judge campaign is providing supporters of the Fairness Fund, an Iowa political action committee, tickets to next Tuesday’s gubernatorial debate in Sioux City. The Fairness Fund is a subsidiary of One Iowa, the state’s largest lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered (LGBT) advocacy organization.
The following is posted on the Fairness Fund’s Website:
Culver/Branstad Debate Tickets!
As you know, the election season is upon us, and one of the most important races this fall is the one at the top of the ticket. Governor Chet Culver, who has stated his unwavering support to protect marriage equality in the state, is facing off against former Governor Terry Branstad, whose has said if he is elected will do whatever he can to pass an amendment taking away the freedom to marry for LGBT Iowans.
Now, you have an opportunity to see these two candidates discuss the issues face-to-face. The Culver/Judge Campaign has tickets available to the first debate of the season next Tuesday in Sioux City. The tickets being made available to supporters of the Fairness Fund and are available on a first come, first serve basis.
This may be your only chance to see these two candidates debate in person this year. The next two debates are at smaller venues, and tickets will be more difficult to come by.
The debate starts at 6:30pm, and tickets will be available for pick up before the event. To ensure we have an accurate count, we ask that people sign up before Sunday.
However, you can’t get a ticket if you don’t sign up. So, if you would like to see democracy in action, and hear where the candidates stand on a whole range of issues, sign up below.
Thanks, and I hope to see you up in Sioux City.
For a candidate that said he supported traditional marriage just four years ago, Culver hasn’t just flip-flopped on the issue, he’s totally embraced gay marriage. It’s also telling that the Culver campaign has yet to fill their allotted seats at the debate, and has resorted to giving those tickets to a special interest group to fill.
