Sun coverage of today's noon debate in DC
The Sun will live-blog today's debate between Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., which kicks off at noon in Washington. You can follow us (@annielinskey and @bykowicz) on Twitter. We'll again be using the #mddebate hashtag.
Want to watch it for yourself? Lots of options. It'll stream live at noon on washingtonpostlive.com and be broadcast live on Washington's WUSA and statewide on Maryland Public Television. The hourlong debate will be rebroadcast at 7 p.m. on MPT and air at 8 p.m. on WAMU.
As colleague Annie Linskey wrote this morning, "the pressure is on Ehrlich to convince voters in the Democrat-rich Washington suburbs that incumbent O'Malley should be fired."
After the debate, we'll again fact-check some of the major claims. This morning, Linskey preempted one we're sure to hear: that O'Malley was responsible for the largest tax increase in Maryland history. Not exactly true. You can also review our fact-checking from Monday's debate. We examined claims about spending, tuition, the DNA database, job losses and still more taxes.
