CD11: Debate set for Saturday night

The traditional Tracy Press 11th Congressional District candidate debate has been finalized for Saturday night in Tracy.

It’s the second face-to-face debate between incumbent Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney and GOP nominee David Harmer. The Contra Costa Times taped an election preview round-table with the two men earlier in the campaign season. (Watch the video below.)

American Independent Party candidate David Christensen has also been invited to participate Saturday.

The Saturday debate begins at 7 p.m. at Monte Vista Middle School, 751 W. Lowell Avenue, in Tracy.

    The McNerney-Harmer candidate forum in Tracy should have the same electric charge in the air as the McNerney-Pombo event did in 2006. That was the ‘Big Event’ of the 2006 campaign. P.S. Did anyone see Lisa Vorderbrueggen and Josh Richman on KQED-DT’s “This Week in Northern California” on Friday? Was it the first time that the “Political Blotter” bloggers have appeared simultaneously?

    I doubt if the electricity generated could run an EZ Bake oven.

    Like there are any voters left who haven’t already voted or made up their minds.

    Jason, It wasn’t the first time but it doesn’t happen too often. KQED tries hard to mix it up among representatives of the Bay Area papers but as you probably know, our numbers have declined and it is far more difficult to round up a new crew of political writers each Friday.
