Nungesser Backs Out of Debates


At the Pachyderms of Baton Rogue, it seems there might have been a different sort of elephant in the room than they're accustomed to. Usually, Billy Nungesser relishes an opportunity to talk really loudly into the mic. But this week, he backed out of two scheduled debates with his opponent in the Lieutenant Governor's race, Jay Dardenne. Nungesser backed out of the scheduled Friday Pachyderms debate Thursday night, leaving very short notice. The second was scheduled for Monday at the Press Club of Baton Rogue, but Nungesser said he had scheduling conflicts. The speculation wire is up and running here, here and here.
