I couldn't get to it either. (But if you did go, let us know what you think.)
The Contra Costa Times says the five candidates for the 10th congressional district engaged in a mostly cordial debate that touched on health care, the hot-button topic of the day, Afghanistan, and California water issues.
The five candidates vying to replace former U.S. Representative Ellen Tauscher in next Tuesday's election are: California Lt. Governor John Garamendi (Democrat), San Ramon attorney David Harmer (Republican), Jeremy Cloward (Green Party), Jerry Denham (American Independent Party), and Mary McIroy (Peace and Freedom Party).
The debate took place at St. Mary's College and was co-sponsored by the Times and St. Mary's College. Although Garamamendi is considered a front-runner in this majority Democratic district (and is leading in Crazy in Suburbia's own poll), Harmer brought the most vocal supporters to the debate, the Times says.
