Last night, Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman, faced off in their first gubernatorial debate. Whitman, the former head of Ebay, blasted Brown for being joined at the hip with labor unions. Brown, California’s current Attorney General, charged Whitman with only wanting to help millionaires like herself. The political rivals, who are locked in a tight race for the governor’s office, took questions for one hour on the campus of UC Davis. Did Brown, the seasoned veteran, make his case? Did Whitman, a political novice, establish herself? Did either candidate win you over?
