Democratic primary debates: What did we learn?

There are 12 comments on the Rochester Business Journal story from Sep 8, 2017, titled Democratic primary debates: What did we learn?. In it, Rochester Business Journal reports that:

Running on the tail-end of two weeks which saw a cancelled debate due to Mayor Lovely Warren's hospitalization, harsh words from Democratic candidate James Sheppard and a campaign finance scandal surrounding Democratic candidate Rachel Barnhart, the long-awaited debate between the candidates finally took place Thursday night. Just five days ahead of the primary vote, the debate, presented by WROC and sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Rochester Metropolitan Area, placed the candidates in the spotlight, presenting their views while not shying away from the personal barbs city residents have become accustomed to this election cycle.

I didn't learn nothing.
I already knew everything I needed to know about our Mayor Mrs Lovely Warren and these other two crackerjacks.

Tubby Warren doesn't stand the slightest chance of being reelected. She has burned her bridges. No more thick mayors.

After she is elected City of Rochester Mayor, likely she will run for Congress or the Senate.

She'll probably serve Rochester for a couple of terms, turning the city around from heading over a cliff to prosperity, then on to Washington.

Barnhart. Our Only Shining Light for Mayor. The People's Choice.

If we use the National elections in 2016 as an example, then we know the democratic primary is rigged.
both candidates are there to give the illusion that they have a choice.

But in the end, Sheppard will drop out after getting a new home by the lake, and Barnhart will drop out but demand a recount.

Funny, but true. I would like to see Barnhart win, only because Lovely Warren is so incompetent, IMO. Her press conferences are abominable, where she tries (and fails) to ad lib, mugs for the cameras and seems generally clueless. Barnhart might, at least, bring some competency to the office.

You have to admit, Barnhart has the pulse of the minority community.

Rachel Barnhart is calling tonight another win in her steps to the New York State Governors office. She's now ready to take on Andy Cuomo in the next Democrat Primary, cause she believes Andy is another bad Democrat that should be in jail and he has only been good at causing division in the Democrat party. She's now scared for New York State and believes she is the only one with the plans, ideas, and experience to fix the problems. Her goal has always been to fight for New York State and she's spend 17 years fighting for NYS as an investigative reporter with stories like "where is all the chicken going?", and "the first bar with a patio in a black neighborhood".

Those two stories brought the black experience into perspective for me. Her empathy was palpable. She, better than her other two opponents, understands the minority community.

Barnhart is the most qualified of the three to be our next Mayor. Well, your next Mayor anyway.

Seeing Rachel got a dog and house just before running for office,
now that she's a 2 time loser, will she be getting rid of the dog and
selling the house. I can't see her being able to pay her next water bill,
even tho she claims she has some secret job somewhere.
