State Senate candidate for Connecticut’s 31st Senatorial District Mike Nicastro has challenged incumbent Henri Martin to five debates. So far Mr. Martin has refused.
Nicastro, desperate to debate anyone, is now challenging candidates in other districts and even other states. They have declined his overtures. “I don’t get it,” said the confused and exasperated democratic candidate. “Won’t someone debate me? Please!”
The situation has deteriorated to the point that Mr. Nicastro is now walking up to strangers in grocery stores and other public and private settings and challenging them to debate the issues with him. They too have refused. “If no one is going to debate me then I am not going to debate them. Two can play that game!” he exclaimed after an old lady at Sheriden Woods refused his pleas to debate him about the state budget.
