Interesting post over at the Globe blog today about the exchange that occurred after last week’s LG debate at Ch. 4 regarding the cancelled LG debate sponsored by the State Party.
Here’s the meaty part of the candidates’ exchange:
I would like to get us all to commit to reschedule that one, said Andrea Silbert. I think its really important to be in front of the state party. Will you commit?
Certainly, said Timothy Murray.
I dont schedule myself, so I have to look at my schedule, said Deborah Goldberg.
Will you commit? Silbert asked again.
I will commit to it if it fits in the schedule, Goldberg said as she started making her way out the door.
In Goldberg’s favor, there have been a number of public forums in this race, and there are two more scheduled (WGBH tonight and WCVB Saturday). And politically, it probably makes sense to stick to her carpetbombing of the airwaves instead of giving the others an opportunity to cause her to commit a gaffe.
But for such a low-profile race, I would think even the money leader would want more exposure – especially since the Globe covered the announcement of the debate back in August.
