I missed the debates last night (forgot to set the VCR ), but I did check in with the live-bloggers. Jeff blogged all three debates and declared Riley, Strange, and King the winners of each. Wade blogged the gubernatorial debate, and he also leaned toward Riley.
The Montgomery Advertiser says the gubernatorial debate was “heated” and “fractious”. Both candidates slammed each other, Baxley accusing Riley of lying about taxes, and Riley telling Baxley she doesn’t understand the issues. At least Lucy finally wore blue instead of her signature red. The lieutenant governors’ debate was “contentious”. The Attorney General candidates “fired…barbs” at each other.
Sounds like a fun night, but I wonder if anyone learned anything new.
