This is outrageous: we just found out that WMTW (ABC Channel 8) has been secretly planning a debate in Maine’s Senate race that will lock out Lisa Savage. When we contacted WMTW to ask about the debate, they immediately referred us to their lawyer, who informed us that WMTW decided Lisa’s campaign was not “newsworthy” and challenged us to take them to court.
This is an outrageous attack on our campaign - an attempt to shut Lisa out of the final debate before people go to vote on Election Day. We can’t take this lying down, but we don’t have big money or high-priced lawyers - all we have is you.
Please sign our petition to WMTW now: Let Lisa Savage debate and let the voters decide!
After you sign and share the petition, please call WMTW at 207-835-3888 and let them know that you want Lisa Savage included in their Senate debate.
Then sign up on our volunteer page if you’re willing to write a letter to the editor or take other action to make sure Lisa’s voice is heard.
Thank you, and stay tuned for next steps!
