Mystery man asks questions at 1st Congressional District Debate
OK, he’s not really a mystery man—he’s Jonathan Martin, reporter for The Seattle Times. We rarely have six candidates in a debate and our cameras were so busy, we didn’t quite get the head-on shot of Jonathan as he joined me to ask questions today. Might remind some folks of the old TV show, Charlie’s Angels. Anyway, I can you tell you he wore a nice tie and next time, we’ll reveal his full identity.
A spirited debate today as Democrats Darcy Burner, Suzan Delbene, Steve Hobbs, Darshan Rauniyar and Laura Ruderman, and Republican John Koster faced-off at our KING 5 studios. On issues such as immigration and gay marriage, there were some clear differences between Koster and the Democrats. And on other issues such as social security and taxes, the Democrats tried to differentiate themselves from each other.
It’s a special hour-long edition of KING 5 News Up Front this Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Also, on our Web site, check out the Up Front Extra, an extended discussion on health care reform taped after the debate.
