is there any more video from the Sarvis/Saslaw portion of the debate?

I did film the beginning of the debate where Saslaw and Sarvis talk about BRAC and transportation, but something went wrong during the transfer from camera to my computer for that file and it wouldn't upload with the others. I'm working on a transcript of the audio, but doing so from my Nikon camera isn't very loud and it's a slow process trying to ensure the words are correct. I'll update the article if a) I can provide an accurate transcript, or b) get the unedited file of that portion of the debate to upload here. Thanks for your question!

Why did you exclude Katherine Pettigrew, Phd, from your list of candidates for State Senate? Dr. Pettirgrew is on the ballot in the 35th district. www.votejoinrun.us

I have now added Dr. Pettigrew to the poll.

I want a new senator for the 35th. Dick Saslaw has been in since the beginning of time – a true Senator-For-Life. New ideas, please. New solutions. Let's try Sarvis. Ditto Lolita Mancheno-Smoak. I've heard this woman speak, and I'm impressed. She's got my vote for At Large school board.
