I just got off the cell phone with Kirby, who was in the very exclusive audience for the WFSB-3 Senate Debate today, and she's going to post a detailed report later tonight, possibly as early as 7PM EDT.
She said that all five balloted candidates were there, Democrat Ned Lamont, Republican Alan Schlesinger, Green Party candidate Ralph Ferrucci,Concerned Citizens Party candidate Timothy Knibbs, and Connecticut For Lieberman Party candidate Senator Joe Lieberman.
Kirby said there were maybe 150 people there, and even though WFSB relented their embargo on reporters, they resolutely forbid any use of cameras or recording equipment. Of course, Kirby took copious notes, and also may have accidently left her digital recorder turned on while it was in the pocket of her blazer.
I'm sure she's very sorry about that. And that she'll be very careful not to transcribe and post any of the important bits.
Kirby mentioned Lieberman's reluctance to directly answer the questions posed to him, and in fact after he "speechified" his third response in a row, Bob Scheiffer turned off his mic in mid-speech.
The other four candidates were resolutely against the war, but Lieberman stayed his course with his "stay-the-course" strategy.
Kirby also briefly interviewed Alan Schlesinger after the event, and there may be more info added to this post as things develop. Stay tuned and check back frequently.
