Ali vs. King on Big Daddy

This is a YouTube clip released by Saqib Ali from his August 5 debate with Senator Nancy King on News Channel 8.

We cannot resist commenting on this issue. Nancy King is right on the facts. If she had not been appointed to the Senate after P.J. Hogan retired, Montgomery County would have lost one of its three seats on the Budget and Taxation Committee. And those seats are important. If Saqib Ali wins, Senate President Mike "Big Daddy" Miller will stick his office in a basement bathroom because he does not want him in the Senate.

But Ali totally hits this out of the park by brushing all of it aside and saying, "I don't spend a lot of time worrying about political bosses and lobbyists and insiders. I worry about representing the people." That's pure political gold, folks.
