MidPoint for Thursday, August 25 – House District 68 debate between Ben Diamond & Eric Lynn


With just days before voters in Pinellas County’s House District 68 go to the polls, MidPoint hosted a radio debate between the two Democrats running in that primary election, attorney Ben Diamond and former Defense Dept. analyst Eric Lynn.

The two men are very similar on many issues, one of the reasons why MidPoint wanted to host such a debate. The candidates discussed their views on school charters, economic incentives for businesses, legalizing marijuana, the BDS movement, and more.

Here is the video from the program.

Voters in parts of Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg, Lealman and Feather Sound will vote in the Aug. 30 primary. The winner faces Republican JB Benshimen in November.
