This fall's election is coming up, and U.S. Rep. David Price is seeking re-election in the district that serves Durham, Orange and portions of Wake County -- the heart of the western half of the Triangle. Price's undefeated in decades of service, with the small exception of the "Republican revolution" in 1994's Contract With America era. No election since '94 has drawn comparisons to that year the way that 2010 has. Will B.J. Lawson fare better in a rematch with the Price campaign this fall?
And -- ubiquitous horse race factors aside -- which candidate reflects the values, choices and issues that match yours?
The Independent Weekly is organizing a debate between the candidates next Friday, October 8 at 6:30pm at the Durham Station transit center in downtown Durham, and has been gracious enough to allow Bull City Rising to be a co-sponsor of the event; yours truly will be one of the panel asking questions of the candidates.
Do you have issues or questions you'd like to see asked of Lawson and Price next Friday? If so, post them in the comments or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via Twitter (@bullcity). And come down on the 8th to meet the candidates and hear what they have to say.
