Barr, Nader and Baldwin to debate in Cleveland

Posted by on Thu, Oct 30, 2008 at 4:27 PM

Sad the debates--and with them, the winks, shoulder pats, split-screens and refusals to answer questions--are over? There's one more left.

Third-party candidates Bob Barr (Libertarian Party), Ralph Nader (independent) and Chuck Baldwin (Constitution Party) will debate today at 4:30 p.m. at the City Club of Cleveland. Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney was invited, though is not confirmed for the event. (Her campaign Web site is down.) Watch the live stream here, or later tonight on C-Span (time unconfirmed).

An earlier attempt at a debate among the four candidates unraveled, resulting in a last-minute debate (streaming video) between Nader and Baldwin on Oct. 23. In an interview with the Indy, Barr said he did not participate in the debate, organized by Free and Equal, because “it was very poorly organized, and we weren’t given enough notice.”

Barr is the only candidate on the North Carolina ballot. Nader and McKinney secured write-in status; Baldwin did not.
