Major LD 17 Senate Candidates Face Off In Piscataway Debate

PISCATAWAY – The two major party candidates for state Senate from the 17th Legislative District went toe-to-toe Oct. 25 in a late-campaign debate at Piscataway High School.

Incumbent Democrat Sen. Bob Smith – whose hometown is Piscataway – and his Republican challenger, Franklin Township resident Daryl Kipnis, spent about an hour making the case for their election on Nov. 7.

The debate was Kipnis’ idea, and Smith readily accepted the challenge. After a false start or two, the Oct. 25 date was settled upon, and the contest was on.

Franklin Reporter & Advocate Co-Publisher PJ Parker served as moderator, and Franklin resident John Felix volunteered to be the time keeper.

The FR&A live-streamed the debate, which is presented below. A technical glitch forced teh debate to be recorded in two segments.
