Debate Highlights

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.
