World Socialist Web Site | Bill Van Auken, the Socialist Equality Party’s candidate for US Senator from the state of New York, demanded that he be included in debates scheduled this month between incumbent Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton and her Republican challenger, former Yonkers mayor John Spencer.

In October 2 letters addressed to the sponsors of the debate as well as to the Democratic and Republican candidates, Van Auken insisted: “Tens of thousands of New Yorkers signed petitions to place my party and my name on the ballot because they oppose the war in Iraq, the attacks on democratic rights and the assault on living standards that are being carried out by both major parties.
