The funniest thing about lieutenant governor races is that candidates
don't have their own placards. Instead, their name is a footnote on
lawn signs and literature, a metaphor that hardly needs further
explanation. Nonetheless, the massive function room at Suffolk Law
School's Sargent Hall was jammed for today's debate, and, judging
from the high interest level, that might have even been the case had
organizers not provided box lunches.
