    It’s really a shame that even though the Independent candidate Jon Barrie has 11+% in the polls he will not be included in the debate. There will however be a peaceful sidewalk protest outside the KRQE studio tonight during the time that the others are debating.

    Pity though. Jon is a very strong debater, a decorated Vietnam vet, a constitutionalist and about the most ethical guy you’d ever want to meet.

    There is a viable third choice.

      Meant to say “You are squashing him”!!

  3. Las Borregas says:

    Why is d*** allowing Heinrich to interrupt Heather. Isn’t d*** the moderator??
    Poor job of moderating!

  4. cw says:

    Heather had no chance because she was constantly interruped. KRQE should put a moderator who will control the situation. It’s a terrible pitty Heather couldn’t respond fully. Totally democratic??????

    What is wrong with Heinrich, does he have no respect for women, even though they are running politics against each other. We need to teach our children this respect not what happen tonight. I wanted to hear everything that was said but he kept interruping, he was going to get his chance anyway. Sorry very bad debate. My decision is made. I don’t think I want to hear another debate. Thanks
