Petition Fred Thompson to Debate sign now

Recently Republican Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee sent a letter challenging you to a one-on-one Lincoln-Douglas styled debate.

The former Arkansas governor drafted the letter following comments you made on the Fox News Channel, criticizing the current process of presidential primary debates for not being "designed to illuminate people's thoughts, feelings."

And, stating, "I kind of think that Newt's idea of going back to a Lincoln-Douglas debate type format where you have two people sit down or stand up ... and discuss one particular topic in depth, and go back and forth about it," referring to a proposal by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

In an interview with CBS News following his address at the AARP convention in Boston, Huckabee said, "I'd be more than happy to accept his offer. I'd love to be in a debate like that and I'm hoping that he'll let me know when and where." Huckabee suggested that the first debate be in New Hampshire.

Asked if he thought he would win, Huckabee said, "I don't know, but I think the American people will win if we have that kind of discussion where we really spend that kind of time in depth on issues."

Mr. Thompson, you, turned down Governor Huckabee's acceptance of a Lincoln-Douglas styled debate; even after over 2,000 voters co-signed Governor Huckabee's letter asking you to debate him.

The below signed believe you have done a disservice to the American voters, and would insist that you reconsider turning down this offer. We will be informing our friends of your decision, as well as spreading the word online, until you will change your mind, and as Governor Huckabee stated, let the people here a real discussion by the candidates about there vision for the future of our country.
