KUAR captured a mini-debate between the Republican runoff candidates for attorney general — David Sterling and Leslie Rutledge.
This car wreck is hard to watch, with arguments focusing on matters almost wholly irrelevant to the office. Who loves guns more, for example. Or who has less regard for same-sex couples seeking equal rights under the law? Or Sterling’s legal work for a seller of on-line porn. Or Rutledge’s occasional votes in Democratic primaries back in the day when there was little at issue in Republican primaries.

Sterling is the worst candidate for his refusal to repudiate dark money support for his advocacy of a Kill the Witness (Stand Your Ground) law for gun homicide protection.
Remember the name Nate Steel. He’s the Democratic nominee.
