That's the word from Democratic Rep. Dina Titus, who has accepted Republican opponent Joe Heck's challenge to debate.
It's unclear, however, whether Titus will agree to the five debates Heck challenged her to in a letter he sent her Wednesday.
Titus spokesman Andrew Stoddard said she has received several requests from different groups that want to host candidate debates and forums before the Nov. 2 general election.
"We are in the process of determining what will be possible to accomplish given scheduling constraints that require Congresswoman Titus to be in Washington fighting on behalf of the people of district three to create jobs and keep people in their homes," Stoddard said in an e-mail to the Review-Journal.
Titus is in a tough re-election race, partly because her congressional district in Southern Nevada is nearly evenly split between Democrats and Republicans. And the Republican Party is targeting her House seat for a possible takeover as she faces former state Sen. Heck, who is considered a strong challenger.
Titus and Heck say they both have clear differences to debate, including the Democrat's support of the new health care law that Heck, an emergency room doctor, wants to repeal.
In asking Titus to debate, Heck said: "The voters of Southern Nevada deserve an open and honest dialogue on the issues most important to them."
Heck said it's especially important now "as unemployment continues to skyrocket, more businesses are forced to shut their doors, and more families lose their homes."
