This may be the largest broadcast and live web stream for a U.S. Senate primary debate in Missouri’s history.
The event is sold out.

UPDATE: Live From the Catacombs posted debate analysis.

Friend and fellow activist Van Harvey added this on the debate:

Steelman had some good answers, but mostly hesitantly given, almost as if trying to pull from memory, often caught mid thought at end of answer period – verbal tick “Old boys club”
Bruner had some good answers but often from mgmt perspective, instead of essential principle driven – verbal tick “Career Politician”
Akin, had good good, better & best answers, smoothly delivered, and driven by key principles – he had me with ‘Repeal Dept of Ed., repeal Dept of Energy and repeal EPA!’ and then ‘Repeal 17th Amdt and promote Madisons’ lost amendment’!

I came hoping to be won over by Bruner – didn’t happen.

I’d say Akin was the easy winner of the night, we’ll see how the coming months go.

  • My thought exactly Tom in CA….Where have the GOP been hiding this one ? If she doesn’t pan out in politics she will be Fox News material.
    Sarah Palin and Sarah Steelman they just keep getting hotter in the GOP.

    I’ll try to not to laugh to loud about the looks of the Democrap women, if they had a beauty contest for the Dem women Barney Frank would win….”Just sayin”.

    Sarah may be pleasant looking but her communication skills need to be sharpened. Her answers are often choppy and halting and give the impression of being unprepared.

    Todd won the debate hands down. We need a leader to defeat McCaskill and Todd is the man to get the job done.

    Akin? A leader?

    Sure he’s a smooth talker, most establishment politicians are after over a decade in DC, but a LEADER? YGTBSM!

    Besides voting with the establishment Republicans to fund Obama Care, Planned Parenthood, the Department of Education, the EPA, and billions of American dollars for the U.N. throughout 2011, what else had Akin EVER done as a congressman?

    Let’s see, there is:

    12 Years on the government dole
    0 sponsored bills that eventually were passed into law
    3 post offices named

    I’m not sure if Missouri could have more ineffective representation.
    (the drop-down tab in the link gives session-by-session records)

    Let the above record show that Akin has turned “followership” into a profession. Akin is precisely the type of politician that we need to help retire if we are ever going to take back our government from the ground up.

    And a note to the Akinistas: I do NOT work for the Brunner campaign. In fact I thought that Steelman actually won the debate tonight, but I’ll probably decide as I walk into the polls on August 7 who to vote for. However, I DO know who I won’t be voting for – Todd Akin, the DC establishment candidate.

  • Democrats: Anti-American, Anti-Christian

    Sarah Steelman–A career politician. BTW, why doesn’t anyone stay at home now a days a raise there damn kids of which she has two. I bet those kids need a mother more than we need another career politician. She couldn’t put two coherent sentences together tonight.

    Todd Akin–A career politician too. I like him conservatively, but get the hell out. You’ve had your chance.

    John Bruner–A business man who is giving up making a lot of money to ‘serve’ the people of Missouri.

    I think I know who I’m voting for.

    I hope Dana asked at least one question in “dramatic voice”…

  • Chad/California

    Sarah Steelman is not a career politician. She served 1 full term as both State Senator and State Treasurer. She was re-elected to both offices, serving one additional year as State Sen prior to becoming Treasurer.

    She is a conservative woman, and surely she recognizes the need for self-term limits.

    Perhaps her husband is a stay at home dad, perhaps they have professional help or help from grandparents or other relatives.

    And actually its none of your business.

    With your backwards attitude I can recommend a book for your coffee table – Its called
    “Mother” by Judy Olausen. Its a book of photographs of her mother staged in the most
    hilarious positions in her role as mother prior to the women’s liberation movement.

  • Ok, regardless of who you are voting for there is no doubt Akin won that debate! It was a lanslide. I went into the debate completely undecided. Now there is no doubt in my mind he is the only one who can oust McCaskil’s crazy self! He is the only one of the three capable of stirring real emotion, he seemed to be the only one with a fiery conviction.

    I got to speak to Akin after the debate and it just reinforced my decision. I believe he will stand for my values and ethics. He will not stand by and allow the government to stomp on our religious freedoms.

  • Mark S.

    I’m still a Bruner guy myself… everything I’ve heard from him so far, has been the “right” thing that I agree with.

    As noted, Akin is way too much of a “go along to get along” politician… he’s blown it way too many times myself.

    Steelman’s been a little too spend happy in the MO legislature to make me think she’s going to change her spots, despite her claims…

  • Votemout2012

    What of bunch of BS about Akin he is anything BUT a go along to get along politician. Anyone who would take 5 min to look at his record would know this. Todd is a fiscal, constitutional, and social conservative with an 85%b rating from the heritage foundation for his conservative record. This is exactly how we ended up with Obama. Stupid ppl looking for charm instead of substance.
