This afternoon, from the Boston Globe:
Huckabee accepts Thompson's offer to debateHuckabee is the only candidate to have accepted Newt Gingrich's challenge for Lincoln-Douglas debate come general election.
On a Fox News appearance Fred Thompson said he wanted have a classic Lincoln-Douglas debate on issues as opposed to the multiple candidate debates that have been taking place.
Today former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee wrote Thompson a letter to say it was a great idea and that he wants to challenge him to a debate in that format in New Hampshire.
On the Jay Leno Show the night of the New Hampshire debate and in his interview on Hannity & Colmes yesterday, Thompson expressed his aversion to participating in the traditional candidate debates, saying that he would like to return to the one-on-one Lincoln-Douglas style.
This is Fred's chance to finally back up his words with action.
