Watch Gordon Fox and Mark Binder go head-to-head on Newsmakers

October 19, 2012

House Speaker Gordon Fox and his legislative opponent, Mark Binder, squared off during a taped debate this morning on WPRI/WNAC-TV’s Newsmakers.

The topics included Fox’s campaign contributors, Rhode Island’s economy, 38 Studios, same-sex marriage legislation, last year’s pension overhaul, and much more. The skirmish is expected to be their last debate, following one earlier this week, before Election Day.

Along with Tim White and Ted Nesi, I put questions to the two candidates.

One highlight: Fox says he will personally lobby Senate opponents of same-sex marriage, such as Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed and Judiciary chairman Michael McCaffrey, to try to get a same-sex marriage bill through that chamber.
