If you haven't been paying attention to the Florida Attorney General race, you had better pay attention and look quick. AG Pam Bondi (R-ick Scott's Lawyer) will only agree to one debate with her opponents, Democrat George Sheldon and Libertarian Bill Wohlsifer, and few in Florida will get to see it:
The debate is being taped in Tampa and will air at 7 p.m. on Bay News 9 in the Tampa area and on News 13 in Orlando. It won't be seen on any television stations outside of central Florida.
The debate will be moderated by the two stations and the political reporter from The Tampa Bay Times.
Outside media outlets are not allowed to attend or monitor the debate.
Sheldon said that the debate audience will be narrow, but he said he will "take what he can get" because it is unlikely Bondi will agree to any other debates.
Is this decision to shut out voters and other media being made by the media outlets themselves who are putting on the debate, or by the Bondi and/or Wohlsifer campaigns?
Bondi certainly has reasons to keep voters uneducated. She's spent most of her time in office trying to block the rights of those same voters, like fighting against health care, contraception for women, and same sex marriage, just to name a few.
After all, any constructive debate won't be a walk in the park in the GOP friendly neighborhood of FOX news, which Bondi's become so accustomed to.
