As the election approaches, candidates in nearly every race will be having public debates. I think these are great chances to see/hear where candidates stand on different issues. They are better than commercials because they are live and less scripted (though generally not unscripted). Here in Washington, there is a Senatorial Debate tonight between incumbent Democrat Maria Cantwell and challenging Republican Mike McGavick.
I’m going to watch this debate tonight. Do you generally watch these kinds of debates? Are they interesting or important to you?
