Boy, oh boy! I sure do feel terrible. I thought it was a good time to highlight our LG live-blog sessions. I had in the back of my mind that all three of the more "progressive" candidates had already been offered individual live-blog opportunities. I was wrong. Both Hampton Dellinger and Pat Smathers have been invited to live-blog with us and an invitation will also be sent to Walter Dalton as well. I apologize for the oversight.
Our discussions on the LG race had stayed so civil for so long and it's disappointing seeing that civility unravel a bit. Hopefully, we can get back on track. We are faced with an amazing group of progressive candidates vying for the job and we should appreciate their efforts and willingness to serve enough to keep our discussions about them on topic. These are candidates we want to see serving this state and its people in some capacity now or in the future. It's in our best interest to avoid ripping them to shreds trying to determine which is the MOST progressive.
[UPDATE] - Before I could finish my lecture I heard from the Smathers campaign. We are on for February 21 with the time to be announced, but it will be in the evening.
