I missed the debate between former rodeo queen Vicki Truitt and challenger Giovanni Capriglione last night due to the fact I was in route back from Kansas City. When I asked him on his Facebook page for a recap, here was his responses…pretty clever if you ask me.
Well, I am not sure how to do it without making it appear completely self serving! So I’ll just post the only tweets I can find on it – and provide biased documentary. Let’s say, “heated” might be a good word.
@budkennedy@ Keller Republican Vicki Truitt opens TXHouse debate by criticizing “self-serving jerks” backing Giovanni Capriglione; photos, video banned
(Gio: So step one, insult)@mqsullivan: getting pretty vocal here isn’t it at NE Tarrant County Tea Party forum w/, State Rep Vicki Truitt & challenger Giovanni Ca …
(Gio: understatement…)@mqsullivan@ Funniest moment at #teaparty forum tonight was State Rep Truitt having to silence her husband from stage w throat-slice gesture.
(Gio: No Comment!)@budkennedy@ At forum, Southlake R Capriglione says it’s a “disgrace how cities–Fort Worth–hide illegal immigrants.” Some hide at jobs in Southlake
(Gio: I was responding to a comment about Fort Worth)@budkennedy@ Toughest task of the night: trying to fit anything else into a 140-character tweet about Southlake Republican Giovanni Capriglione
(Gio: This was actually pretty funny)
I can post what my prepared speeches were, but I must admit, I can’t guarantee I stuck to it. No videos were allowed by request of my public official opponent.
I imagine since Bud Kennedy was there, he will do a column on the debate. Seeing how Bud will spin things to favor Truitt will be interesting.
