Soundbites from candidates forum: Lucky Varela (D) vs. Bob Walsh (R)

By   /   October 2, 2010  /   No Comments

Here’s the fourth and final installment of selected soundbites from last Tuesday’s candidates forum in Santa Fe. Democratic incumbent Luciano “Lucky” Varela – who has served in the state legislature since 1987 — is facing Bob Walsh, who describes himself as a progressive Republican. The two are running for state House of Representatives in District 48. Sorry for the poor audio quality. The sound system in the room was very hollow.
