Liberal Becker and his overwhelming debt from his first campaign and now repaying it with the funds from his current campaign. Becker never showing up for debates, he is hiding his Liberal Agenda.

Liberal Becker cannot get to a debate. He was scheduled to debate at Nassau Community College on Tuesday, 10/9, but was a no show -- instead, he was at the Carltun begging for votes and money.

Begging for money Becker ...... Not the kind of guy you want in Congress -- paying for his last run with his current treasure chest.
