2/27/20 FRIGHTENED FITZ! Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick Refuses Debates with Ballot Candidate Andy Meehan

PRESS RELEASE: FRIGHTENED FITZ! CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK REFUSES TO ATTEND BUCKS COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE DEBATE WITH BALLOT CANDIDATE ANDY MEEHAN https://meehan2020.com/congressman-brian-fitzpatrick-refuses-debates-with-andy-meehan

On Wednesday, February 26, ANDY MEEHAN FOR CONGRESS campaign was officially added to the ballot for the April 28, 2020 Republican Primary in Pennsylvania District 01 against his opponent, incumbent Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick.

On the same day, Andy Meehan for Congress campaign was informed by Bucks County Community College debate coordinator Bill Pezza that Congressman Fitzpatrick has refused to attend the Bucks County Community College Debate traditionally hosted at BCCC Lower Bucks campus.  Congressman Fitzpatrick’s official refusal ensures cancellation of the 2020 BCCC Debate.

Congressman Fitzpatrick chose to attend BCCC Debates against other candidates, notably Dean Malik on May 1, 2018 and Scott Wallace on October 25, 2018.  But Congressman Fitzpatrick is refusing to debate the only other candidate on the 2020 Republican primary ballot: Andy Meehan.

ANDY MEEHAN FOR CONGRESS campaign is shocked by Congressman Fitzpatrick’s refusal to participate in free, open, public debate with an official candidate on the ballot.  His refusal is an unprecedented and cynical act of disrespect for PA-01 traditions, students, and the general public.

While shocked, we are not surprised.  Andy Meehan has repeatedly challenged Brian Fitzpatrick to engage in free, open, public debate on his failed public record of more gun control, defunding the Wall, funding Planned Parenthood, carbon taxes, more war, biological men in women’s spaces and sports, amnesty for illegal immigrants, silence on sanctuary cities, and his disloyal condemnations of President Trump.

Instead, Brian Fitzpatrick continues to hide behind abusive campaign staff, vicious negative campaign ads, and libelous attacks in the media by the failing Bucks County Republican party leadership. These Democrat-style ANTIFA tactics are considered “civil political discourse” by Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Republican, Brian Fitzpatrick.

Brian Fitzpatrick’s repeated rejection of Republican values and voters is already public record. But his official refusal to debate is proof positive that every voter deserves better than fake, frightened Brian Fitzpatrick.
