On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Chris Winn, candidate for the U.S House of Representatives, talked with Chad Hasty about his campaign against Randy Neugebauer for U.S. House.

With early voting set to begin next week, Winn and his competitors, incumbent Randy Neugebauer and challenger Dr. Donald May, will be having a debate next Monday. However, Winn was disappointed to learn Neugebauer would not be present at the debate, despite being in town during that time. A representative for Neugebauer's office will speak on his behalf at the debate, but Winn still criticized Neugebauer for his lack of attendance, calling it an "insult" that we would not show up for the debate himself.

"I think it's insulting to the people of this community that the person who's been elected for 12 years has decided not to debate challengers to his position after he has a record, whether it's his voting record or whether...he's been ineffective. I would challenge that. I think Congressman Neugebauer has been extremely effective for his own personal interests and for the interests of Washington and Wall Street. it just hasn't translated into the interests of West Texas."

The debate will take place Monday, February 17th at Vintage Townships starting at 7 PM.

Winn also spoke about the Farm Bill vote, once again criticizing Neugebauer for failing to be a strong voice for agriculture despite coming from an agriculture-heavy district. He said that is he were elected, he would be that strong ag voice and would look out of the interests of the people of West Texas, not the interests of Wall Street and Washington. Winn also explained why he had not been active in fundraising and advertising his campaign, saying that he is not interested in becoming a career politician and that despite not raising any money, he still expects to get more votes this time around.
