After weeks of flying beneath the radar and cultivating an aloofness with media, GOP Congressional candidate Kellie Greene has launched a charm offensive by challenging her opponent to debate and agreeing to be interviewed on America's Favorite Noontime Talk Show.
Ms. Greene called the HOTLINE today to announce her acceptance of my invitation to appear. She will be on June 21, a day after presumed Republican frontrunner Matt Doheny appears. Both candidates compete in a June 26 primary for the right to oppose Rep. Bill Owens.
Ms. Greene was ebullient in her call, even suggesting her previous avoiding of the show was merely her desire to "keep a man waiting."
Since I am particularly susceptible to even the most insincere flattery, I was taken back by her sudden kindness.
We look forward to both interviews which will be the area's most definitive long form discourse with the candidates.
