Their View: Three upcoming debates may tell very little
Kenneth Blackwell and Ted Strickland both came out swinging in their first debate in the race for Ohio governor.
The debate on Sept. 7 in Youngstown between Blackwell, a Republican, and Strickland, a Democrat, was heavy on name-calling but light on substance. The Lincoln-Douglas debates they weren't.
We suggest undecided voters not pay much attention to the three upcoming debates, unless they enjoy watching politicians engage in name-calling.
Pay attention to the political coverage in a newspaper or the TV news. Or do research on the candidates on the Internet. Any of that would be more enlightening than the hot air coming from the gubernatorial debates.
