U.S. Congressmen Charles Boustany and Jeff Landry finally sat down for an actual debate tonight and got to the heart of a lot of interesting questions on Obamacare, Medicare, negative campaigning, and jobs in the oil and gas industry.  If you missed it, we have the full debate, broken down into questions so you can hear the parts you’re interested in.

We broadcast this debate live on Cajun Radio 1470/1290 AM this evening, thanks to our sister station, Newsradio KPEL 96.5 in Lafayette.  First off, here were the rules of the debate.  A coin toss determined who went first.

  • Candidate 1 gets asked the question and has :90 to answer.
  • Candidate 2 gets a :60 rebuttal.
  • Candidate 1 gets a :30 wrap-up.
  • Then, the process is reversed — Candidate 2 gets a stab at the same question for :90.
  • Candidate 1 gets a :60 rebuttal.
  • Candidate 2 gets a :30 wrap-up.
