Goldmark-McMorris Debate in Spokane Today

For those of you who would have liked to see the Goldmark - McMorris debate in Spokane today, Goldmark's campaign staff has put a transcript of the debate up on a diary at DailyKos.  Take a look and give them a recommend so it will stay up awhile.  Peter seems to have done quite a good job against McMorris, who is reputedly not much of a public speaker.  Here are a couple of paragraphs from Goldmark's introductory remarks:

Economic realities in eastern Washington are difficult, facing high energy and fertilizer costs while energy prices stay low. Concerned our nation is losing its way. I see distressed economic conditions right in my home town--but I don't see anybody doing anything about it. I see dangers from terrorism, but confused and inadequate responses from our government.

Honesty and democratic values are eroding all around us, visible most painfully in our nation's capital where so many are caught in a miasma of greed and money. Our system was built on open representation and not the sweet temptation from money and lobbyists. I have to look my children in the eye and say our future is okay. I know we can do better.

Seems like a good time to give some money to Peter
