Bono Mack, Ruiz Agree to TV Debate

The incumbent Congresswoman and her Democratic opponent plan an October debate.

Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (R-Palm Springs) and challenger Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Coachella) have agreed to terms on a televised debate next month. 

The October 12th debate will be televised by KMIR and co-sponsored by KMIR and The Desert Sun.

No details have been released about the format of the debate.

The debate will be the second for the incumbent, who took on Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet in a 2010 debate. Ruiz is making his first run at elected office, and in his first political debate appearance.

This Debate needs to be Titled "THE LESSER of TWO EVILS Tour!". On one hand you got Ms Part time Mary Bono-Mack who as far as I'm concerned had no Significant Legislation Authored by her signed into Law during her entire time in Office.On the other hand you Dr. "OPEN THE BORDERS AND LET MY PEOPLE IN" Raul Ruiz.

This debate will be interesting to see who of the two has the best answers (solutions) to the issues...
