GOP Gubernatorial Candidates Square Off

By Amy Hart in Arts & Entertainment on Jan 24, 2006 4:19PM


Clear your schedule on Wednesday evening. Four Republican candidates for governor, Bill Brady, Ron Gidwitz, Jim Oberweis, and Judy Baar Topinka, will be debating live on CBS 2 at 6 PM.

We appreciate CBS 2 televising the debate tomorrow night, but we are incredibly disappointed that they are not letting the public send in any debate questions. As if that wasn't bad enough, they didn't even offer us any rules for drinking games. Personally, Chicagoist would like to ask Oberweis, "¿Porqué odias America?" And we will drink a shot each time Topinka mentions Jim Edgar.

But enough about us. What questions would you ask the candidates? And more importantly, what drinking rules will you follow during the debate?
