With only a few days to go before they’re whittled down to just one, the 6th District GOP candidates are “debating” on MPR’s Midday today.
Krinkie didn’t show.
Meanwhile, his campaign Web site is still down.
Kinda feels like the wheels are coming off.
(Update: The wheels are still on. A Krinkie e-mail newsletter update arrived today)
BTW, I was wrong in a response I posted yesterday. The Midday folks are not taking calls or allowing online folks to ask questions. I have no clue why.
I’ll try to get some of the answers posted to the individual candidate pages on Campaign 2006 at some point this afternoon. Hopefully.
Update 12:42 p.m. – It was pretty much of an hour of “me, too.” Here’s the highlights. They’re also on the individual candidate pages on Campaign 2006.
