Who Won Latest Debate: Scott Brown or Elizabeth Warren?

Held in Springfield, this debate focused more on issues, less on personal attacks.


Vital issues core to this race for the U.S. Senate — taxes, healthcare, soaring higher education costs, abortion, insurance coverage of contraception — were the focus of last night's debate between Sen. Scott Brown and challenger Elizabeth Warren.

And, of course, there were different views of which candidate accomplished the most in this penultimate debate. The final debate between them is scheduled for Oct. 30.

Who do you think 'won' last night's debate? Tell us in the comments section below.

If you're looking to compare voting records please try the following website: http://www.opencongress.org/people/compare. I ran a comparison to Sen Kerry (votes Party Lines 96% of the time) and it would appear to me that Sen. Brown has been largely Bi-Partisan since he came to office. Also, a study done by the Boston Globe for 2011 shows Brown as the 2nd most bi-partisan Senator. I'm an independent, so one aspect of this election I'm looking at in great detail is the candidate's ability to take that bi-partisian road. I just don't see Warren, who I feel will be a John Tierney / Pelosi example of a Democrat rubber stamp in the Senate, as a the right direction for the U.S.

Rick - That's a cool web site that I haven't seen before. Thanks for the link. When I looked here, I saw a red herring in Brown's claim to be the second most bipartisan GOP senator with a 67% GOP voting statistic. I would have to think (a little conspiracy theory here) that this was either by design of his handlers so that he could make this claim to a largely democratic MA electorate or he was simply doing other things he deemed more important to vote. Either way, I have to look as his absence a unacceptable. His responsibility is to be there for the votes. Had he been there, his 67% would no doubt be a great deal higher. I have my mind made up and I don't think he's been truthful with us.

You do realize Brown wasn't voted in until 2010. He wasn't voting because he wasn't in the senate.
