Republican Randy Maggard Too Chicken for Live On-Air Debate

Won’t Debate Democrat Kelly Smith on WFLA News Channel 8 Ahead of Tuesday’s “Special Election” in Pasco

AND SO IT GOES WITH RANDY MAGGARD: Another invitation, another refusal to face East Pasco voters with his ideas for District 38. Excuses and avoidance have become standard for the Republican candidate in response to repeated requests to face Democrat KELLY SMITH in debate or any public forum that would benefit voters and explain what Maggard stands for. Little information is available about his campaign platform and ideas for representing the county in Tallahassee.

This time, the invitation came from WFLA News Channel 8 with a request to appear in studio for a debate with Democrat Kelly Smith. Emmy-winning reporter and journalist Evan Donovan, who anchors News Channel 8 Today on weekend mornings, hosts the network’s Sunday morning political show and reports on News Channel 8 Today during the week, was excited to moderate and have the candidates discuss their views on important issues and explain their platform to viewers and Pasco voters.

Evan Donovan Interviews Candidate Kelly Smith “Live On Air” — Sunday at 9:30 am

District 38 voters have one candidate in Tuesday’s race — DEMOCRAT KELLY SMITH — who believes in talking to voters, meeting with them in public for Town Halls, Debates and Community Forums and sharing her vision for constituents by all means possible.

Guess who’s going to be live on the WFLA News Channel 8 Sunday morning political show with Evan Donovan tomorrow? What topics do you want me to talk about? Tune in at 9:30 am to see the live interview! #vote #Pasco #FLHD38 #WesleyChapel #Zephyrhills #DadeCity #YourVoteYourVoice.
