Hunt/Ellis debate emphasizes differences
You can watch the debate at the Sandwich Community TV website: http://vp.telvue.com/preview?id=T01161&video=132974. By the way, the Therese Murray / Tom Keyes senate debate is the second half of the video at that link.
One weird situation came up during the debate when Patrick claimed that I had signed the Grover Norquist pledge and wanted me to explain why I would do this. I replied that I hadn't signed the pledge. This morning, I went back through my election file and found the two letters from Americans for Tax Reform (Norquist's organization) that I had received in 2010 and 2012. I had written on each that I did not submit the pledge, and the attached pledge from each letter is blank. See the scanned images here.
It's not the first time I've run into incorrect information posted on the Internet. I'm sure my opponent or someone on his campaign staff read my blog post about this issue (read it here) where, in the comment section, "Anonymous" asked if I signed the Norquist pledge and I responded that I had not. That should have been a clue.
Anyway, we had a good time and I look forward to any comments about the debate that you care to share.
