Live from the Holiday Inn...

Checking in from the Holiday Inn. We're about nine minutes out from the beginning of the final congressional debate.

The media here is all in a tizzy, because we're being kept out of the room in which the debate is taking place. Instead, we're in a side room, watching the debate the same way viewers at home are watching the debate: on a TV.

Some woman, I think she's from the Associated Press, is making a fuss to Murphy spokesman Ryan Rudominer, who, of course, doesn't have anything to do with putting is "in the closet." That's all Channel 9, which is sponsoring this debate. They, I guess, have exclusive rights to be in the room.

In response, three other TV networks walked out from the debate.

Pretty ridiculous.

No promises, but I'll try to check in again during the debate.

Thats pretty amazing that any journalists and reporters were being
kept out of room, hence keeping you and others from doing your job.

Unbelievable!! Shame on both candidates.
