Up for Debate

The only Alabama gubernatorial debate for 2006 will be held tonight at 7 in Montgomery.  After Bob Riley and Lucy Baxley finish sparring (*yawn*), the candidates for Lieutenant Governor and the candidates for Attorney General will debate.  I guess we could see fireworks – I have great hopes for the Tyson-King debate – but I predict the most interesting part of the evening will be Loretta Nall’s protest outside.

Kidding aside, take the time to watch the debates.  I hope they’ll be more substantial than the “you’re a liberal; you’re a crook; you’re soft on crime” rhetoric that we’ve heard so far.  Maybe we’ll all end up with solid reasons to vote one way or another.

The debates will be broadcast on Alabama Public Television, beginning with a special introductory broadcast of For the Record at 6:30 pm.  The gubernatorial candidates have an hour, with 30 minutes each for the lieutenant governor’s race and the attorney general’s race.  (Thanks, anonymous.)

    I’d love to see Loretta debating them. It’s a shame she can’t be.

  4. I will be live blogging the debate tonight on my blog if anyone cares to read some live commentary.

    Thanks, Jeff. Will you be in Montgomery?

  6. ” I hope they’ll be more substantial than the “you’re a liberal; you’re a crook; you’re soft on crime” rhetoric” Oh, Kathy, and they call ME a Polyanna! But we can dream, can’t we?

  7. Nope – going to be watching it from the TV just like the other 25 people watching =)

    We are getting together at the Shelby County Republican HQs to watch.

    Should be relatively boring debate unless Loretta Nall figures out a weigh into the debate and streaks across the stage and jumps on Baxley!!! Then it would be great!
