This evening at 7 PM Ed Gillespie and Ralph Northam will be participating in their second debate. Second debate? Yep! For the political junkies who missed it, here is a video of the first one.
Sitting on the fence about who to vote for? To put this latest debate in context, you may find it worth your while to watch the first debate. Because candidates tend to watch the polls, they may shift their positions, sometimes quite subtly. So if we want to determine where a candidate is standing firm, we have to check his record and see if his position shifts with the winds of popularity.
How can you watch this evening’s debate live? Here is a link to the network that is broadcasting it.
