San Francisco Mayor Debate: Huffington Post Live Stream
Bummed you missed out on the booing, the air horns, the name-calling, the hullabaloo that was this Monday's mayoral debate?
Fret not, San Francisco political junkies: There's another huge debate this Thursday, and The Huffington Post will be live-streaming all the action right here.
Thursday's event marks the second debate to feature our interim Mayor Ed Lee, who officially declared his candidacy this week, and we're expecting quite a show from the crop of hopefuls. The whole thing is being brought to you live from some of the best faces in town: Media darling Melissa Griffin will moderate, the ever-hilarious fan favorite Beth Spotswood will provide commentary alongside legendary drag performer Pollo Del Mar, and the whole thing will be hosted by the San Francisco Young Democrats and the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club.
In addition to Lee, the organizers expect all the major players to participate, including Michela Alioto-Pier, John Avalos, David Chiu, Bevan Dufty, Dennis Herrera, Joanna Rees, Phil Ting and Leland Yee. Will Chris Daly's merry band of naysayers gather outside in protest? Our fingers are crossed.
Meanwhile, if you want to catch the action firsthand, the debate is open to the public and takes place from 6-8 p.m. at the African American Art & Culture Complex on 762 Fulton Street. Otherwise, we hope you'll curl up on your couch and watch the drama unfold with us.
To get into the debate season spirit, take a look at this clip of Beth and Pollo in action during last year's Supervisorial forum:
