On her Tuesday show, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow questioned the wisdom of Sen. Kay Hagan’s (D-NC) decision to take a pass on a debate against her Republican challenger Thom Tillis earlier in the evening.
“See the empty chair there?” Maddow said. “The moderator explained that Thom Tillis’ answers wouldn’t be timed because nobody else needs to talk because the Democratic incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan would not be attending that debate. So for you voters, we present this hour-long conversation with just the Republican candidate on TV, for an hour, uncontested so we can tell you what he thinks without any time constraints and without anybody rudely interrupting. Two weeks before Election Day.”
“Did I mention this race is basically tied?” Maddow added.
