VIDEO: WNPR/CCSU Democratic U.S. Senate debate

From the Tort Theatre at Central Connecticut State University, here's video footage of the Democratic U.S Senate debate between Chris Murphy and Susan Bysiewicz.


The debate was moderated by two former candidates for statewide office themselves - Ned Lamont is a cable TV executive and professor at CCSU, who ran for both Senate and Governor.  In 2006 he was the Democratic nominee for the Senate seat - after a successful challenge to incumbent Joe Lieberman.  He later lost the general election. Oz Griebel is a Republican who is President and CEO of the MetroHartford Alliance. Oz was a candidate for Governor in 2010.  

Lamont and Griebel asked the debate questions in two parts - the first a standard debate format, the second a more freewheeling conversation.

WNPR's Colin McEnroe and Mark Pazniokas from the Connecticut Mirror offered pre and post debate discussion and analysis.
