LOS ANGELES (AP)
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown is challenging Republican Meg Whitman to 10 town hall debates.
Brown tossed out his proposal Wednesday, a day after the party faithful selected their nominees in the general election race for California governor.
Speaking to reporters at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, Brown suggested that town hall exchanges would bring variety to a contest that has so far been dominated by scripted television and radio ads.
It's not the first time the former two-term governor has challenged the former eBay CEO. During the state Democratic Party convention earlier this year, Brown suggested a three-way debate with Whitman and her challenger in the GOP primary, state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner.
Poizner accepted, but Whitman declined.
Whitman's campaign spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
