CD19 Town Hall – How did the candidates do?
As the winner of the CD19 primary election will be known in another 5 days, our candidate forum last night was a last minute snapshot of the three candidates at the peak of their efforts, and all did a fine job. The panel, which included conservative radio host Joyce Kaufman, and the secretary of Generation Joshua (a teen Christian political club) Ariel Waldron, asked a variety of questions concerning the issues and the campaign strategy. Personal queries were also asked, such as what historical figures they admired (Ed Lynch chose Abraham Lincoln, Joe Budd – George Washington, and Curt Price – Ronald Reagan), and the candidates were able to ask each other a question.
The exchanges were civil and businesslike, and it is clear that all three gentlemen hold well defined conservative values. That said, there were some differences in their answers and we would like to hear from our members as to who they thought most emulated their own views on the issues. Please add your comments to this post, and take the special survey on the sidebar that will run from now until the Tuesday Primary.
