The MPR online forum for Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District DFL candidates concluded earlier today. They’ve posted the feed of the questions and responses, which is worth a read. The question I submitted made the list. Reading the archived feed is a little like stumbling into a very polite Facebook battle a couple hours after the fact. I don’t know how I feel about that, but it is all four candidates talking about the issues. Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN8) is due to submit his response to the forum before 5 p.m., along with closing statements from the four DFLers.
I’m not going to “score” this debate, but I do think you can see some of the stylistic differences between the candidates. I think the untold story is the nonverbal reaction to some of the tougher questions, one sacrifice for the format.
