No Major Scores or Screw-Ups
We are headed back to Richmond from Northern Virginia after the Warner-Gilmore debate and if you saw our liveblog, you probably already know that there was no major scores or screw-ups. Former Governor Jim Gilmore tried very hard to paint Former Governor Mark Warner as a tax and spend liberal who can’t be trusted and Gov. Warner tried to show Gilmore as a fiscally irresponsible right-winger who doesn’t get along with anyone. Here is a picture from my vantage point at the debate:
The big story is that, I can’t imagine that too many opinions will be shifted one way or another. The focus of our coverage on NBC12 (which will be in our 4, 5:30 and 6pm newscasts) will be how hard Gilmore has worked to get this debate and the upcoming statewide televised debate on October 3rd and if was able to capitalize on the opportunity.
