TV Shy?



The Rod Smith campaign issued a letter Tuesday challenging Jim Davis to appear on television beside Rod Smith, while accusing Davis of backing out of three televised forums.

"This makes three opportunities for a televised forum that you have not accepted, and I believe that this does a disservice to the Democratic Party as well as the voters of Florida," Smith wrote in a letter to Davis.

The Jim Davis campaign responded that Davis has appeared with Smith in some 70 forums so far. And they say Davis has committed to appearing on three televised debates in late July and August, according to an email from Davis spokesman Josh Earnest.
