Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Bob Kerrey is seeking to secure a date for a televised debate -- with someone other than his Republican opponent.
Kerrey has for weeks taken GOP U.S. Senate candidate Deb Fischer to task for not accepting an invitation from Fox News for the two to debate.
On Wednesday, Kerrey sent a letter to "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace offering to appear even if Fischer won't.
Kerrey proposes instead to debate anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, noting that Fischer has signed Norquist's pledge to not raise taxes.
Fischer's campaign spokesman, Daniel Keylin, responded he finds it interesting that Kerrey hasn't criticized Sen. Ben Nelson for signing the same pledge, and that Kerrey "is clearly trying to deflect attention from his taxing record."
