Tonight Jill Long Thompson and Mitch Daniels will have the first of three debates. Libertarian candidate, Andy Horning will also be in the debate. It will take place in the Star Plaza in Merrillville. The pressure is probably on Long Thompson who is trailing in the polls and is facing a well-funded incumbent who, for whatever reason, is not being penalized for the unpopular decisions he made in the early part of his first term. If Daniels is following the play book of his mentor George W. Bush, he made his unpopular moves early in his term, tempered his actions in the second half, and will revert to early-term form as soon as he’s re-elected.
