ELECTION 2018: 34th District State Senate campaign revs up with Wednesday debate

The hottest local race on the November ballot, 34th District State Senator, is revving up. Tomorrow night (Wednesday, September 12th), candidates Joe Nguyen and Shannon Braddock will debate at the monthly meeting of the 34th District Democrats, who endorsed both before the 11-candidate August primary. According to an advisory from the Nguyen campaign, it will be a “Lincoln-Douglas style debate,” not the standard Q&A forum; the advisory explains, “Lincoln Douglas style debates are similar to the format used in high school debate competitions. Candidates will have the opportunity to cross examine one another and respond to claims made during the debate.” The 34th DDs’ meeting starts at 7 pm Wednesday at The Hall at Fauntleroy (9131 California SW).

P.S. We recently interviewed both candidates, recording a half-hour conversation with each one, and will be publishing those stories – text with video – here on WSB tonight and tomorrow.

    shoot; would like to share this story, but not with only one of the candidates photo showing up in the FB share; do you have any way to fix that?

      Facebook controls what they show and what they don’t, nothing I can do about it, sorry. But you should be able to share just as a URL – copy the URL, paste it in your own post, when an image and blurb comes up, hit the little x on the upper right. At least that used to work.

    There’s always and still the chance to write in a candidate when the ballots arrive as these two beat the same drum.

    Question Authority:  Exactly my thoughts too.

Sorry, comment time is over.
