The video of last night's "Duel in the Desert" debate between myself and former gubernatorial candidate Alan Webber is now up:
9-8-14 Duel in Desert: Paul Gessing and Alan Webber debate the New Mexico Economy (moderated by Gene Grant) from Paul Gessing on Vimeo.
In case you missed it, we also had "dueling" opinion pieces that are now posted at NM Policy Debate.
While the crowd was definitely, pro-Webber, no matter which side of the debate you fall on, the New Mexico economy is the single most important issue facing our state. I was gratified to see hundreds of people show up to hear a discussion of the issues. It was a great opportunity to present the Rio Grande Foundation's vision of a more economically-free New Mexico to a new group. Definitely not "preaching to the choir."
