CD12 Democratic Debate Season – Starts Tonight in Princeton

In the race to succeed Rush Holt in Congress, there are four Democratic candidates; alphabetically Upendra Chivukula, Linda Greenstein, Bonnie Watson Coleman and Andrew Zwicker. Tonight, we’ll have our first chance to see how they stack up against each other, as the League of Women Voters moderates the first debate of the short campaign season that will produce a Democratic nominee in June. Whoever that is, will likely win November in this reliably Democratic distict.

    Greenstein’s gratuitous attack on Kerry for the concern he expressed that Israel is on the road to

    apartheid with its policies in the occupied terrotories lost me.
