Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman: The First Debate

Hosted by

We've just broadcast the first face-to-face confrontation between this year's candidates for Governor, Attorney General Jerry Brown and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman.  We get reactions from Republicans and Democrats. Did Brown explain how 45 years in politics qualify him to be Governor all over again? Did Whitman demonstrate how her business experience prepared her to start at the top in politics? In what could be a low turnout election, did they reach their parties' most likely voters?  What about Independents?  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, it's another record year for campaign spending, with special interests unleashed as never before. We talk about the influence of campaign spending on Capitol Hill.
