FORT WAYNE, Ind. – 10News.com — A northeastern Indiana congressional candidate said she abruptly ended a debate because she got stage fright.
Democrat Maria Parra walked off a television stage Thursday, ending what would have been her only debate with incumbent Republican Mark Souder in the 3rd District congressional race.
“I’m not used to being in front of the camera. … I couldn’t get my words out. I was just overwhelmed,” she said after the aborted debate, which was being filmed at a Fort Wayne TV station and would have been aired this weekend. The matchup has not been rescheduled and is not likely to be, The Journal Gazette reported Friday.
Perhaps the big mean Republican scared the poor little Democratic lady?
Actually, Souder was supportive of Parra’s knowledge of the issues in his remarks afterward.
