2. The Chamber's "debate" is scheduled from 12:30-1:30p on March 3, which (in what I'm sure is just a massive coincidence) is only 30 minutes after the conclusion of Minnesota Public Radio's Midmorning debate between Amy Klobuchar and Ford Bell. If the MPR debate doesn't run long and if traffic isn't too bad Amy just might be able to make to the "debate" just as its scheduled to begin. Its like the Chamber is trying to set up a scheduling conflict so that Amy won't agree to participate.
Actually, it's 19.5 miles from downtown Saint Paul to the heart of Blaine, where the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce is located. Yahoo clocks the travel time at 28 minutes. To follow-up on Zack's thesis, if the MPR debate ends on time, and if Klobuchar has a car waiting for her at the front door, and if traffic isn't bad, and if she doesn't take time to take a sip of water or hang up her coat, she could theoretically make it to both debates.
Of course, if Klobuchar could attend both debates, so could Ford Bell. Maybe MetroNorth should invite him, as well.
Bell had already accepted the debate challenge before Kennedy.

Apparently, Roll Call is reporting that Bell has agreed to both debates. Not only has the NorthMetro Chamber invited Bell, as I said they should, but Bell has accepted.<< Home
