SAO PAULO (AP) A leading right-wing presidential candidate in Brazil appeared to backtrack Thursday on his initial decision to skip all seven remaining debates before the Oct. 7 election, saying that he may participate in three.

Earlier, an attorney for Congressman Jair Bolsonaro said the candidate would not attend the remaining debates because they did not add to the race.

But after a campaign event in Sao Paulo state, the congressman later said he could not "lose contact with the people."

"I can't be in a studio, there are 40 days to the election," Bolsonaro told journalists. He said he wouldn't attend all the debates, but his "idea" was to make an appearance at some.


You may remember this hate-fueled, racist, misogynist, openly pro-dictatorship fascist P.O.S., Congressman Jair Bolsonaro.
