Marty Lamb Talked to us post-debate

Stacy McCain has more on Marty here

Marty Lamb doesn’t just talk about the American Dream, he lives the American Dream. He’s a small-town lawyer, a citizen who felt the call to serve, with no ambition to become a career politician.

The fact that he was not planning on being a career pol was the gist of his excellent and (regretfully) ignored answer to the question that contained the McGovern misstatement.

Marty Lamb is the best choice for the district not because of anything McGovern has said by accident but because of what McGovern has done on purpose in office.

The newest member of the Axis of Fedora’s take on the debate is here

There were about two hundred people at the event. The Moderator for the event was Stefani Traina of the League of Women Voters of Andover – North Andover. First of all, there was no American flag at this event. Second of all, when one of the candidates brought up the voting record of Congressman McGovern, the moderator stopped him, calling that a personal attack. When the audience responded loudly, a discussion of the candidate’s voting record was permitted.

This was not really a debate. The candidates were not allowed direct exchanges and there were many things said that I personally knew were not true, but there was no provision in the format the challenge the statements made.
