Here's a roundup of local blogs on the mayoral debate tonight:
Joe Sacramento found "Fargo's snarky grin and huffy body language to be insulting... How many comments did she make under her breath?"
Ben Adler of Capital Public Radio (a co-sponsor of the event) thought this debate was the best yet. "Here, both candidates came out aggressively. Johnson continued to press the mayor on her shortfalls, but this time, Fargo has more than returned the favor."
The mysterious author of Uneasy Rhetoric also liked the debate, but wasn't so hot on Fargo's performance, nor KJ's. "Fargo's answers are unconvincing and her attitude toward Johnson is blatantly condescending. Johnson's answers are unrealistic. He is full of energy but overestimates the ability of the mayor to get things done."
Ben van der Meer also didn't help voters much in making a decision by Nov. 4. "Fargo is a bureaucrat who is out of touch and out off ideas to improve the city. Challenger Kevin Johnson talks a bigger game than he can back up, with no real plan or identified way to pay for his ideas."
UPDATE: Jason Daniel of Capital Elector offers a different take than the bloggers above. He opines that "Fargo wallops K.J. before and after the debate" and that Johnson "looked like he was going into hyperventilation to get all of his talking points out."
