FORMER GOVERNOR TED STRICKLAND SAYS HE WANTS AT LEAST FIVE DEBATES AROUND THE STATE LEADING UP TO THE GENERAL ELECTION IN HIS RACE AGAINST U-S SENATOR ROB PORTMAN. PORTMAN'S CAMPAIGN SAYS HE'S EAGER TO DEBATE STRICKLAND, AND THAT THE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN RECEIVING DEBATE REQUESTS AND WILL WORK OUT DETAILS WITH STRICKLAND'S CAMPAIGN. STRICKLAND SAYS HE WROTE A LETTER TO PORTMAN PROPOSING DEBATES IN OHIO'S FIVE MAIN REGIONS TO HIGHLIGHT THEIR PRIORITIES ON KEY ISSUES. A PORTMAN CAMPAIGN SPOKESWOMAN SAYS STRICKLAND'S PROPOSAL COMES AS "A WELCOME SURPRISE" AFTER HE REFUSED CALLS TO DEBATE HIS LEADING DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY OPPONENT. STRICKLAND'S SPOKESMAN SAYS THERE ARE "SERIOUS POLICY DIFFERENCES" TO DEBATE IN THE GENERAL CAMPAIGN THAT DIDN'T EXIST IN THE PRIMARY RACE.
