Debate #1

Republican Governor Kim Reynolds and Democratic challenger Fred Hubbell met in their first televised debate on K-C-C-I T-V in Des Moines.

The candidates were given a chance to ask one another questions. Hubbell questioned a campaign check Reynolds took and Reynolds questioned Hubbell’s personal finances.

Reynolds has released 10 years of the personal income tax returns she and her husband filed. Hubbell released the front pages of the tax return he and his wife filed last year, showing their income and how much they donated to charity. During last night’s debate, both of the candidates said they oppose reinstating the death penalty. Both oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use. Both said local governments should decide when fireworks may be sold and set off. And Hubbell said “yes” to term limits, while Reynolds said “no.”
