Final Debate Wrap Up


I promise…no more writing about the debate after this. 🙂

  • The Helena IR has a poll up, asking which candidate won the debate. It looks like the GOP has already started flooding the results, because there is no way that anyone thinks Burns won. No way.
  • The Hill has a wrap up, that is pretty superficial. Craig Wilson offers faint praise for Burns: “Wilson said Burns helped himself by getting the word “liberal” in several times.”
  • Joe Klein offers a pretty clueless assessment of the race to the Montana News Network: “you have an incumbent with a questionable recent history in Washington whose been part of the Abramoff scandal or at least mentioned in it and you have a challenger who is taking some pretty controversial positions like today his opposition to the Patriot Act.”
