Libertarians Bill Gelineau and John Tatar, rival candidates in the Michigan gubernatorial primary election, met for an hour-long debate on July 15 that was broadcast on WOOD-TV Channel 8, based in Grand Rapids.
Political reporter Rick Albin moderated the debate, saying that WOOD-TV was happy to host the conversation and calling it “a unique event, since this is the first time the LP has qualified for the primary ballot in Michigan.”
Albin had Tatar and Gelineau express their views on such issues as roads and infrastructure, no-fault auto insurance, Medicare work requirements, education, school shootings, marijuana, gerrymandering, the state supreme court, immigration, water quality, the opioid “epidemic,” transparency, the pension tax, the state income tax, and scrapping government groups.
