That's a question you might be asking if you watched the KWCH 12 candidate forum Monday night for those running for congress in the first district.
One empty podium kind of stood out like a sore thumb, didn't it?
That podium had been reserved for Republican candidate Tim Huelscamp.
Even though he was invited to take part from the very start, his campaign declined to be involved.
A spokesperson told us that the Huelscamp campaign would only "participate in forums that feature viable candidates."
That may have been a reference to Libertarian candidate Jack Warner.
For Tuesday's 4th district forum, we are scheduled to have a total of four candidates, representing the GOP, Democrats, as well as the Reform and the Lilbertarian parties.
On Thursday, two candidates for governor will be with us.
Hope you can watch and take part in the live on-line chat that follows at 7pm at KWCH.com.
