Not exactly live from DCCC & council debate


Apologies for the technical problems that plagued us at last night’s one and only County Council debate.

Our plans to do our 'Live From the Newsroom' show before the debate, then a live-stream of the debate itself, along with live Tweeting by reporter Danielle Lynch, went down the drain when we could not get Internet access on the DCCC system.

We managed to get a few minutes of our Live From the Newsroom show on before we again crashed.

Many thanks anyhow to the League, in particular Katherine Miller, who joined Gil Spencer and myself, along with GOP boss Andy Reilly, and Democratic leader David Landau.

We did manage to try to offer a blow-by-blow of the debate via Twitter.

You can read our full coverage here.

Tonight’s scheduled mayoral debate in Chester between Republican incumbent Wendell Butler and Democrat John Linder should be a barnburner. That’s because the city has been buzzing ever since Democrats took umbrage at billboards popping up around the city that seem to indicate an endorsemnt of Butler from no less a spot than the White House and President Barack Obama.

The GOP says it just isn’t so; Democrats are saying the billboards are misleading.

We’ll have all the action from Chester. Hopefully reporter Danielle Lynch will have better luck live-tweeting from Widener.
