CA-52: Dem longshot fishing for a debate with a...unique...tactic
Frontrunners often eschew debates, for the simple reason that they don't want to give media focus to challengers. Furthermore, they don't want to risk blowing their lead on a debate gaffe that will get extended media play. Most challengers fire off sternly worded letters, or perhaps even crash the campaign events of the frontrunners. Others might get clever, hiring folks in chicken costumes to shadow their rivals. Ray Lutz, the Democrat challenging Duncan Hunter in the decidedly-red 52nd district east of San Diego, has taken it to a whole new level. He has gone on a hunger strike to raise awareness of Hunter's reluctance to debate. In an interview with The Atlantic, he says that the strike (in its sixth day) is going well, and that he has no immediate plans to halt it.
