Debate HighlightsOctober 14th, 2008 at 12:47 pm by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
Mitch Daniels gets a big laugh when asked to rate the legislature from 1 to 10. Says Daniels, “7-point-628!” Thompson voted for an 8 or a 9. Andy Horning says intent: 9 and execution: 1.
Jill Long Thompson perks up the audience by accusing Daniels of investing Toll Road Funds in “Junk bonds, Freddie Mac, and Fannie Mae.” Daniels responds by saying, ” I thought we might find a kindler, gentler you, but no,” then says the funds are safe and the state Treasurer made the investment decision. He doesn’t dispute the accusation.
Closings: (my summary)
Horning: A vote for me is not wasted.
Daniels: We delivered change, we will deliver more.
Long Thompson: We need new leadership.
