What’s the best way to make sure your photo op gets noticed by the local media? For some of the U.S. Senate candidates, the new tactic is to hold a debate at The Desert Sun’s doorstep.
Republican Orly Taitz, who is best known for launching the “birther” movement, will join Marsha Feinland, a Peace and Freedom Party candidate, will be on the sidewalk outside of 750 N. Gene Autry Trail on April 24. Other unnamed challengers to Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein are being invited as well.
The 10 a.m. event, announced in a short email over the weekend, is billed as a debate. It will be moderated by Earl Ammerman, who ran for a congressional seat in Nevada.
“The goal of the debate is to bring the story to the media,” the email said.
