Crowd Responds to Carroll at KITV Debate.

Carroll “endears” himself to the audience at the Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association sponsored U.S. Senatorial debate. Televised by KITV and moderated by Anchorwoman Paula Akana, the debate was lively with the absent Linda Lingle the target of barbs from all side.

John let Linda Lingle know she was missed at today’s debate.
I’m John Carroll, and I’m running for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate,” said Carrol. “I’m running against Linda Lingle…and she’s just running….from me.”

According the CivilBeat: “Republican Senate candidate John Carroll was the clear winner when it came to endearing himself with the audience,” in their early coverage story Hirono and Case Scrap, But Carroll Wins Laughs.

CB also acknowledged John’s serious side, and Lingle’s propensity to duck debating him:

“Carroll certainly made a case for his argument that his primary opponent, Linda Lingle, should debate him — for example, criticizing her failure to get an EIS for the Hawaii Superferry.

But Lingle won’t join Carroll at any campaign appearance, and Hannemann, who heads the lodging association, said Lingle’s campaign told him that the candidate ”does not participate in primary appearances.”

WATCH THE RE-BROADCAST OF THE DEBATE ON KITV AT 4:00 PM THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 2ND.
