HARTFORD, Conn. – Since August, Republican Tim Herbst has been trying to get state Treasurer Denise Nappier to agree to a debate.

Until Tuesday morning it looked as if it was actually going to happen. Herbst and Nappier would share the stage at the Hartford Public Library and talk about their views of the office. But Nappier’s campaign spokeswoman, Rose Ryan, said Nappier would be unable to attend due to “personal reasons.”

Mary Ann Turner of Enfield, who attended Tuesday’s debate at the Hartford Public Library, said she was disappointed Nappier was not there to lay out her vision for the state. In making her statement publicly at the forum, Turner said she understands Nappier is dealing with a family situation.

A relative of Nappier, who declined to give her name or say how she was related to Nappier, said she was unaware of any family situation. The female relative declined further comment when pressed by the media.

HARTFORD, Conn. – State Treasurer Denise Nappier won’t be attending the one and only scheduled debate in the race for state treasurer tonight (Tuesday).

Nappier’s campaign spokeswoman Rose Ryan said she would be unable to attend the event due to “personal reasons.”

Her Republican opponent Tim Herbst said he intends to attend the debate and “debate an empty chair,” if he has too. However, after spending the whole week prepping for the debate and rearranging his schedule, Herbst said he hopes Nappier reconsiders.

“I’m in a state of shock,” Herbst said an hour after learning of Nappier’s decision not to attend.
