Campaign

Bruce Poliquin resisted invitations to debates where Blaine Richardson would be present, including one sponsored by MPBN. Political observers stated this might have been due to Richardson's potential to split the conservative vote. Emily Cain expressed support for Richardson being present at debates and said she will only attend debates where both of the other candidates are present.[44] A debate to be held on WMTW-TV was cancelled after Cain pulled out to protest Richardson not being invited. WMTW said they and their parent company, Hearst Television, had strict criteria for invitations to debates that Richardson did not meet. This criteria included holding large campaign events, fundraising, and performance in polling, all of which WMTW said were not met.[45]

On August 29, Richardson revealed, and Poliquin's campaign confirmed, that Richardson rejected a request from Poliquin to quit the race. A Poliquin spokesman stated the phone call was made because Richardson has "no chance" to win and "seems more interested in working with Emily Cain to bash Bruce rather than have a discussion about the future". Richardson said he would stay in the race and he was "so fed up with the parties, both of them". He also said that Poliquin asking him to quit was one of the biggest boosts for his campaign it has seen.[46]
