Lt. Gov. Walsh a No-Show to U.S. Senate Debate

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Senate Democratic candidates gave speeches.     

John Bohlinger and Dirk Adams talked about the issues they're championing.  But in his speech, Adams also criticized Lt. Gov. John Walsh for not attending.

"We are getting shown who one of these candidates is because the money is more important than the people for one of us," says Adams.

Bohlinger announced he would reconsider his campaign if Walsh is appointed to serve out the rest of Senator Max Baucus' term, if Baucus is confirmed as the ambassador to China.

Bohlinger says, "If you run against an incumbent, the incumbent has an incredible ability to raise money and unfortunately money plays a significant role in the outcome of elections. So, I would have to reconsider my campaign effort."

But Adams encouraged Bohlinger to stay in the race.  Adams also talked about women's issues and climate change, including opposing the keystone XL pipeline and creating jobs in other areas.

The midterm elections are in November.
