The final televised Lansing mayoral debate before the August 2 primary fails to include the incumbent, Mayor Tony Benavides.
Mayor Benevides declined the invitation to debate, citing a "Fairness issue."
His campaign claims News Ten hosted a debate in 2003, and this time he wanted to debate on another channel.
That's not the case. News Ten merely carried the broadcast signal of a debate hosted by WKAR-TV.
