Governor, Lt. Gov and SoS Atlanta Press Club Debates Air Tonight

The Atlanta Press Club debate series continues tonight with the candidates for Secretary of State, Lt. Governor and Governor. Here’s the schedule:

6 p.m.: Secretary of State
Doreen Carter, Democrat
Brian Kemp, Republican (incumbent)

6:30 p.m.: Lt. Governor
Casey Cagle, Republican (incumbent)
Connie Stokes, Democrat

7 p.m.: Governor
Jason Carter, Democrat
Nathan Deal, Republican (incumbent)
Andrew Hunt, Libertarian

The gubernatorial debate won’t have the huge crowd seen at the first debate in Perry. Those in the audience at the GPB studio in Midtown Atlanta are instructed not to applaud or make any noise eat all. That admonition, of course, won’t affect what will be a number of people live tweeting their reactions and comments during the debate.

You can watch the debate on your local GPTV station, or on the GPB website. If you can’t watch the debates as they occur, they will be archived on the Atlanta Press Club website.

        Senate could select its own presiding officer. If governor is unable to complete his term legislature could have a procedure whereby they select a governor pro-tem until next election. Five states don’t have a Lt. Gov.

    Jessica is going to throw something at me, but I’m going to throw this out there… Did Dr. Hunt really say it was a “badge of honor” to receive federal grant money to help conduct research he did? Even if there is a completely Libertarian-approved justification, the soundbite is horrible for what most people understand about basic Libertarianism. And please – fill me in how that is justified in big-L circles.

      Just remember this debate for every time in perpetuity a Libertarian decides to end a debate they’re losing by saying “at least I have principle”. I’m guessing we’ll get to use it a lot.

    Carter seemed to spend his time lobbing grenades, and throwing money at education. I don’t understand what he wants to do with more money for education. Deal seemed to be the only one who dealt in facts and results. But I do give a hats off to Carter for opening with a remembrance to Matt Burgess.
