(LIVE VIDEO) Chris Kluwe May Debate Chair Regarding Marriage Amendment
The Vikings punter invited at least 10 prominent Republicans to take part in a debate, though none took him up on the offer.
Kluwe, a vocal advocate for gay marriage who has recently been speaking out against the proposed constitutional marriage amendment, reportedly sent out letters to 10 prominent Minnesota Republicans asking them to take part in a public debate over the proposed amendment.
The Vikings punter has made it clear he plans to take part in the debate at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19, at the Brave New Workshop. Twin Cities radio personality Tom Barnard has signed on to act as moderator for the debate.
On Thursday afternoon, Kluwe took to Twitter to provide an update on whether he'd found an opponent.
"As of now the empty chair is still my leading debate opponent. We'll be at The Brave New Workshop tomorrow at 5pm to discuss things," he tweeted.
Use the embedded video above to watch along and see if anyone actually shows up to debate Kluwe or if he's forced to handle things Eastwood-style and argue with an empty chair.
