HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The Democratic candidate for Montana’s U.S. House seat is proposing six debates with Republican U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke.

Denise Juneau, the current superintendent of public instruction, proposed a series of debates over the summer and fall in Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Glendive, Great Falls and Pablo, on the Flathead Indian Reservation.

Juneau says it’s important to agree upon and quickly set a realistic number of debates. She wants them moderated by an independent news or community organization.

Zinke campaign spokeswoman Heather Swift told Lee Newspapers of Montana that the campaign received Juneau’s letter and looks forward to working with Montana media organizations to schedule several debates.
