On Friday North Carolina Rep. Charles Taylor (R-11) failed to show up in Asheville for a radio debate with challenger Heath Shuler, as he had promised. This was a huge blunder, as a lot of media were present in studio, and callers were lined up, for what was to be the only live debate between the two. Shuler has been running slightly ahead in polls.
But what did Shuler do when handed this gift by his opponent? Did he act like he’d reached the end zone before? The answer is no — he walked out.
