Indiana Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly and challenger Mike Braun agree on one thing: at last night's debate, they ignored Libertarian candidate Lucy Brenton. She was making good points, but she might as well have not been in the room as Mr. Braun and Sen. Donnelly rehashed their campaign ads at one another. Repeatedly asked by the moderator to stay on topic, they never strayed from their talking points.
Remember Dems saying, "Listen to the women?" Ms. Brenton might as well have been hollering down a well. And while the GOP likes to claim they embody old-fashioned, chivalrous politeness, that didn't appear to apply to listening and responding to points made in a debate. She said it best: "These two gentlemen are part of the problem," she remarked during the debate.
I'm not impressed by either man.
And I'm still voting for Lucy Brenton.
