Orange County Rep. Loretta Sanchez on Tuesday called for four debates. The proposal was a counter offer to the two debates that Harris announced she would participate in last month.

“As we’ve said for weeks, our campaign is done debating debates and has closed the door on new debate invitations,” said Harris political consultant Sean Clegg. “If Sanchez is serious about debating, we’ll see her at KABC on October 5.”

Harris had agreed to participate in an Oct. 5 debate sponsored by the Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs at Cal State Los Angeles KABC TV and a Sept. 20 debate sponsored by the Sacramento Bee and other media outlets.
