As we head into the final stretch of the 2008 election year, Utah NOW is presenting a series of debates in some of the races. Join us for a special edition of Utah NOW as KUED and Voices for Utah Children present the Utah Governor's debate between Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. and challenger Bob Springmeyer.
Earlier this week Republican Governor Jon Huntsman and his democratic challenger Bob Springmeyer joined us in the studio to talk about the issues in the race. This year we’ve partnered with the advocacy group – Voice for Utah Children to provide a forum for the candidates to respond to the questions related to children in the state. Some of the questions dealt specifically with children’s issue – though it’s hard to separate those issues from others – there isn’t really a subject that in one way or another doesn’t affect young people and their future.
After watching the debate please respond to the Quick Poll to measure the candidates responsiveness to children in Utah. Also visit www.kued.org/voteutah to find out what other candidates are saying about children’s issues.
