THREAD - Profiles In Cowardice: Republicans from coast to coast are refusing to debate their Democratic opponents in front of constituents. #DemsWannaDebate

A race-by-race rundown (incl. video/photos) of the most egregious cases of debate-dodging:
The bottom line message here: demand accountability and transparency in representation. And don't settle for anything less.

What follows is a series of quotes from Democrats who aren't having much luck coaxing their opponents into live debates. /2
Liz Watson wants to debate Trey Hollinsworth in #IN09. Where's @RepTrey? cc: @LizForIndiana
@HarleyRouda would love the opportunity to debate @DanaRohrabacher in #CA48. As Harley likes to say, #DebateMeDana #DemsWannaDebate
Janet Garrett thinks @Jim_Jordan should quit delaying their debate in #OH04 and give a clear choice to constituents. cc: @Janet4OH
@PeterRoskam won't actually debate in front of constituents within his own #IL06 district. But @SeanCasten wants to. #DemsWannaDebate
Where is @DevinNunes? He's definitely not debating Andrew Janz in #CA22. #DemsWannaDebate @JanzforCongress
@RepGregWalden still hasn't responded to Jamie McLead-Skinner's multiple requests for live debates. Why? #DemsWannaDebate @JamieforOregon
#AL05 is ready and waiting to hear @Peter_Joffrion debate @RepMoBrooks. But where's Mo? He's not responding to requests. #DemsWannaDebate
Poor @RepHuizenga was forced to decline a debate last week because he was really busy...golfing? @VoteRobDavidson was ready and willing, though. #MI02 #DemsWannaDebate
Jaime @HerreraBeutler has been a no-show in #WA03 for years. She recently turned down an invite from the League of Women Voters in Clark County to debate Carolyn Long. Why? #DemsWannaDebate @ElectLong
There is some video of Justin @Kanew trying to coax @DrMarkGreen4TN into a debate, to no avail. Why won't Green debate? #TN07 #DemsWannaDebate
@RepBobGibbs has rebuffed every attempt by Ken Harbaugh to debate in #OH07. It's on video. Why won't you agree to debate, Bob? #DemsWannaDebate @Team_Harbaugh
Why wouldn't @RepPeteOlson agree to debate @SriPKulkarni in #TX22? He had plenty of advance notice. #DemsWannaDebate
#WV03 is an open seat. You'd think both candidates would want to spar and make their case publicly to their future constituents. Richard Ojeda does. Why won't @CarolMillerWV agree to debate? Even at Wendy's? @Ojeda4congress
@RepRonEstes wouldn't debate @JamesThompsonKS during last year's #KS04 special election. This year is no different. What is Ron afraid of? #DemsWannaDebate
@ReneeHoagenson wants to debate in #MO04. Where's @VickyH4Congress?
