State Sen. Stewart calls for 4th District debates

WINCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) -- State Sen. Eric Stewart wants to have three debates with Republican Congressman Scott DesJarlais before the Nov. 6 general election.

Stewart said in a letter to DesJarlais that he wants to have the debates over the next month so voters in the 4th Congressional District will have a chance to see where the candidates stand on issues.

The Winchester Democrat wants DesJarlais to respond by email to his campaign by Aug. 13.

Stewart also said his staff will work with Desjarlais' staff to find a location and time for the debates.
