Today, before leaving a town hall in Plantation, Florida, U.S. senate candidate Patrick Murphy agreed to take one more question from a voter.

A visibly upset Florida man asked why Murphy is refusing to debate his primary opponent, Rep. Allan Grayson. . That question comes a week after former Democratic candidate for governor, Alex Sink, said Murphy’s refusal to debate Grayson was “bad for democracy.”

Murphy has cited accusation from Grayson’s ex-wife of domestic abuse as the reason why he is refusing to debate. In a statement released last week, Murphy said:

“I have heard from many people, including survivors of domestic abuse, that Alan Grayson’s continued presence in this race is an insult to the countless Floridians whose lives have been affected by this kind of violence.”

Murphy quickly exited the town hall without answering question. The questioner was then escorted out of the venue.
