Stefanik and Doheny Have Final Debate Before Republican Congressional Primary

The debate, taped Thursday afternoon and televised Thursday evening, saw the two candidates agree on most issues.
(WTNY) For the final time, Matt Doheny and Elise Stefanik debated ahead of their Republican Congressional Primary a little over a week from now. The debate, taped Thursday afternoon and televised Thursday evening, saw the two candidates agree on most issues. Those included development of the Keystone Pipeline, repealing Obamacare, and removing farm labor from the current immigration debate in Washington. The two did spar over the federal bailouts of 2008. Doheny accused Stefanik of being involved in the Bush approved bailouts since she worked for the administration at the time. Stefanik responded by accusing Doheny of benefiting from them through his work on Wall Street. Both did say they oppose bailouts of any kind. The narrative seems to be on who is most qualified to sit in Congress. Stefanik touted her upbringing in a small business family while Doheny drove home the point that he grew up in the North Country and has a successful business background that will serve him well in Washington. The primary is June 24.
