Democrat Todd Camenisch complained last week that state Sen. Frank Antenori was avoiding debates with him after the League of Women Voters canceled a Sierra Vista event when the group didn’t hear back from the Republican lawmaker.
“I’m quite surprised,” Camenisch says, “but I guess Frank realizes that a Marine can kick an Army guy's ass any day.”

Antenori says he's looking forward to three debates with his Democratic challenger.
