Why doesn’t Mike Durant want to debate? Has the cat got his tongue?
When it comes to debates, interviews and personal campaigning, Durant is speechless. It’s one thing for an incumbent with a lead in the polls to shy away from debates and avoid non-scripted messaging. It’s weak, spineless and boring, but pretty much the norm these days.

But a political newbie like Durant should be anxious to tell his story and let people know who he is and where he stands. So, what’s the deal with this outsider GOP candidate for Senate who is skittish about talking out loud in public yet finds himself with a lead over opponents Katie Britt and Mo Brooks?
It may not be a cat that has Durant’s tongue, but somebody has it. Under lock and key.
Who’s behind the mask? If Durant won’t reveal himself to voters in a debate, we can only speculate.
