Please join me in sending thanks to KVOI 1030 AM for providing the streaming audio during this live chat, with no commercial interruptions. It is much appreciated.
Note to justsaynotobho -- There's a slight delay in the audio. Reporters tweeting from the auditorium are hearing the debate faster than those of us outside are.
The debate is over, but we will leave the chat open for a bit longer.
Kelly asks Barber who he supports for president; Barber won't answer, saying he's focused on his own race. Kelly says "Obamacare" is the biggest issue and that Barber won't say how he stands on it or on President Obama. Kelly says his biggest fear fear is Obama's "job killing policies." Barber says his biggest fear is Kelly's "extreme positions."
Reply to justsaynotobho -- Oh, OK, I misunderstood your question, then. Was there anything in particular you thought the Star got wrong in trying to post quotes in real time?
@Pamela - We will most likely have a live chat on CD8 election night, June 12.
To thinkingliberally: The moderator was Joe Burchell, the chief of the Star's downtown bureau.
Thanks much to all of you readers out there!
