Gordon sputters, Galeotos and Throne shine at governor debate

Democrat Mary Throne successfully ribbed several of her opponents and managed to stand out with pragmatic policies like Medicaid expansion that most GOP candidates on stage shied away from. She touted her experience as a lawmaker and claimed she was the only person there who had worked on a state budget (a claim Gordon might have grounds to dispute, though he didn’t).

She also went after Jackson businessman Foster Friess, an unexpected late entry into the race, with a biting response to Friess’ suggestion that social services ought to be prioritized over road construction.

“It’s easy for Foster to say that he wants to cut road construction because I think he flew here in his plane,” Throne said. “The rest of us drove.”

At another point, Throne mocked his suggestion that two school districts might voluntarily decide to consolidate their administrations to save money.

“I want to be in the room when they have that discussion,” Throne said to laughs from the audience. “You can always count on Foster for an innovative look.”
