Eric Garcetti and Wendy Gruel face off tonight in the final mayoral debate heading in to the run-off election in two weeks. Morning Answer co-host Brian Whitman says he’s going to settle in tonight with his pizza, sprite and Haggen Dazs and watch the fireworks.
“The mayoral debate…is going to be potential mayoral candidates disowning everything that they’ve ever done. And um, this is their last chance to explain how they are different from one another,” summarized Morning Answer host Ben Shapiro.
“This is the final countdown,” pointed out co-host Elisha Krauss. “What they want to do tonight is they want the other person to say something so stupid that they can immediately call their consultant, and their consultant will call their printer and their media buyer, and will start to target say, if Eric says something stupid about teachers unions then Wendy can grab that audio, use it for a mailer, use it for a new commercial, and try to distance herself from Garcetti – even though they’re pretty much the same person.
