Kim Foxx said no to a debate against her Republican opponent in the Cook County states attorneys race and will not sit on a stage with him at all as she campaigns for reelection.
We learned during the recent Ed board interviews, that the States Attorney participated in with Mr. OBrien, that he will instead use the time for Trump-like name calling and fear mongering, Sims wrote. During this nationwide crisis, she will not sit across the stage from a Republican that exploits tragedy to win a campaign. We had plenty of that last night. Voters deserve better.
OBrien quickly pounced on Foxxs turndown, which he said was a disservice to the people of Cook County.
This campaign is one of the most important and high-profile races in the state, OBrien wrote. It is my belief that voters deserve to know the substantial differences between the candidates. I am ready and eager to debate Ms. Foxx on the record.
When asked about the accusation of Trump-style debate tactics, OBrien spokesman Brad Goodman said, Ms. Foxx doesnt want to debate Judge OBrien because he has successfully and publicly exposed her failures when it comes to prosecuting violent crime and her role in the Jussie Smollett case.
The debate, scheduled for mid-October and hosted by ABC-7 and other groups, was called off Tuesday afternoon, according to an email obtained by the Tribune.
I wanted to circle back and let you know that States Attorney Foxx has declined our invitation to debate, so we will not be producing a debate, an ABC news director wrote.
Goodman said another debate was scheduled with WTTW on Oct. 26, to which OBrien accepted.
A producer at WTTW said the Foxx campaign has not responded to emails asking whether she would attend.

It is becoming a horse race.
Ahhh, poor widdle Kim, meanie’s calling her names. Hey Kim, has he called you ‘Donkey face’ yet?
She’s that idiot who let that scumbag Jussie Smollett go scot free.
The first time I saw a photo of this mutant I thought I had mistakenly clicked on a website for a wildlife magazine.
Bet Kim Foxx is a Soros baby.
“The O’Brien campaign refused to agree to a necessary banana break every 15 minutes!,” Ms. Foxx’s spokesimian angrily chattered.
More likely she does not have the intelligence to respond to her opponent. But that is who the voters prefer now. Evidence? The last election, she was approved by majority vote. If the voters did not approve of her, why was she elected?
Trump like name calling? I believe it was Biden doing the name calling last night, not Trump.
Kim "Crimesha" Foxx was a spawn from the original Soros brood.
I clearly heard Joe B on national TV calling our US president a CLOWN. I wouldn’t do that even to Clinton or Obama or Gore! That is unacceptable.
It is important as to who “counts” the “votes”.
What a total joke.
The “new normal” is that leftists can falsely label their opponents as _____ (insert something bad) and then escape all scrutiny/questioning. Failure to vote for such an underhanded, slimy, coward means you are a ______ (insert something bad).
She’s also a “foxy” lady. NOT!!! More like a rabid fox in the hen house, and a coward too.
Her next “hen house” will be a jail house, and well deserved.
She belongs in prison.
OBrian should debate a cardboard cutout of a chicken.
Bet Kim Foxx is a Soros baby.
...who is an incompetent and corrupt prosecutor and poor public speaker.
She is absolutely competent, fulfilling her mission to make law enforcement a farce.
