In response to the letter by Marty Fluke ("Middleton campaign owes Faircloth an apology," The Daily News, Jan. 25): The Middleton campaign for Republican Primary of District No. 23 had nothing to do with the response to the Wayne Faircloth campaign ad.
The sponsoring organizations invited both candidates to the forum.
The Middleton campaign agreed to appear at any of the dates offered. It would be unfair to the Middleton people to cancel an event that they already had on a hectic schedule of campaigning.
They were never asked to get involved with how the event was set up. They just appeared at an agreed-upon date.
