The first D.A. race debate of the cycle took place last night, focused on domestic violence. According to Heraldo’s report, the moderation wasn’t entirely balanced in terms of enforcement of debate rules, although it should probably be regarded as a minor slip rather than any indication of bias. I didn’t find any coverage in the Times Standard.
A CLMP-sponsored debate will take place at 6:00 p.m. tomorrow night at the Vets Hall, and will be aired on KMUD. Questions will be fielded from the audience for the second half. They will hold a Hospital District candidates debate from 7:00 to 8:00
Unfortunately, on the same night, the Fortuna City Council candidates will hold their debate at the River Lodge from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Brown and Whitman will be debating tonight, and the media is already acting weird about it. I’m not sure if other debates are scheduled. Republicans around the country are dodging debates because they perceive the climate as in their favor and they won’t want the boat rocked, and Whitman, who is deathly afraid of the media, may like being called to the mat by an opponent even less. Then again, she is falling behind in polls and may need more debates to mix things up.
I’m not sure what time or which stations on which it will be aired.
I actually don’t think the anticipated “Second Republican Revolution” will reach California this year, but everything is in flux all over the country.
