Fight Breaks Out at Republican Senate Debate

A physical fight nearly broke out at a Republican primary debate last week in what was truly a mockery of the American political process. Josh Mandel and Mike Gibbons, both running for a US Senate seat representing Ohio, got face to face and chest to the chest when discussing their experience and qualifications. Gibbons said to Mandel, “you’ve never been in the private sector.” This prompted Mandel to stand up and reference his military credentials.

He shouted, “two tours in Iraq, don’t tell me I haven’t worked.” The confrontation caused the crowd to jeer and the moderator to calmly get between them and say, “it’s okay, alright?” The showdown looked much more like an altercation at a bar than a debate for a US Senate seat, but given the state of Republican politics today, maybe that’s what many of their voters are looking for.
