Categories: Campaign News

There's a mayoral debate at noon today at the Belo Mansion; let the Dallas Bar Association know if you're coming. Or: You can jump to the other side and watch David Kunkle and Mike Rawlings go at it for 22 minutes on WFAA-Channel 8, where they squared off yesterday during Dancing With Brad Watson.

Rawlings, incidentally, spent most of his day at Victory Park, throwing some kind of press conference before Mavs-Heat ("Let's cheer on the Mavs, talk about economic growth, and cheer on Mike Rawlings for Mayor," said the invite). He also debuted his new campaign signs, seen above, which prompted my father to ask this morning if "stealing someone's shine is illegal." I dunno, you could always ask a former police chief. Or the Westboro Baptist Church. Jump for the video.

Rawlings says the tollway has to be built, no matter what.

Leppert said the tollway has to be built, no matter what lies he uses.

Kunkle says he never trusted the claims being made by Leppert etc during the tollway debate.

Kinda sorta looks like Kunkle might be on to something, ya think???

I'd love to hear their take on getting a new city manager.  I think Mary Suhm and her secretive, manipulative band of free-spending mischief makers have long overstayed their welcome.

Listening to Rawlings is like watching a magician take your money, place it in his hat, and pull out a dead rabbit with diamond encrusted teeth.....ALL FILLER, NO SUBSTANCE

Patrick Michels will be there. We'll post his account later in the day. And if those topics don't come up, well, perhaps he can just as the dynamic duo hisself.

I'd like to hear if Rawlings is still for the Trinity River tollway fraud given yesterday's DMN story.

Please come to the debate today.  It's open to all, and I have it on good authority that the candidates will be asked whether they would consider a change at City Manager.
