Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Harris and Democratic challenger Heather Mizeur agreed to a debate in their 1st Congressional District race but planning stalled when Harris suggested he wouldn’t participate unless the Libertarian Party candidate was invited. Harris, a conservative seeking a seventh term, has not said directly that he will withdraw from the Oct. 26 debate if Libertarian Daniel Thibeault is not included. But Harris’ campaign had agreed to the debate before a staffer contacted an organizer and insisted that Thibeault be invited, said Doug Donley, executive director of Cecil Public Media, also known as Cecil TV, which is overseeing the event.
