The debate between His Excellency and Jay Gonzalez just wrapped up and I honestly don’t think it will move the needle much. On social issues I felt like I was watching a Dem primary debate, though Gonzalez tried moving Baker to the right by repeating that he endorsed Geoff Diehl. On fiscal issues Baker sounded like British Tory PM during Questions Time explaining how his approach actually worked better toward outcomes progressives would like. Gonzalez responded to much of what Baker said about his accomplishments by saying not good enough. It was very polite and occasionally produced points of agreement and I have to admit I miss politics done this way. Jon Keller seemed fair and mostly stayed out of the way. The Senate debate will be Friday 10/19 also on channel 38, at which I expect we will see starker contrasts.
