Meanwhile, the two candidates meet Tuesday evening at a forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters (beleagured, we sometimes refer to the group, because the work it does is underappreciated).
Champion and Harpool also meet this week in what's being billed as a debate. From the Springfield Public Schools:
Glendale High School's political discussion club, Sons and Daughters of Liberty, will host a debate and panel discussion between state Senator Norma Champion and challenger Doug Harpool.
The event takes place from 3:15 - 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 26, in the Glendale library. Five club members will serve as panelists; one of them will moderate the debate.
Son's and Daughters of Liberty is a student political debate club created in 2005.
The event "is educational but also seriously political," said Mike Snodgrass, who teaches advanced placement government and liberty and law honors classes at Glendale. "It's an important event for the candidates and students alike."
Back soon with the usual madness. The League forum beckons.
