The first post-Farmfest meeting between Congressman Tim Walz and Republican challenger Allen Quist was something of a 90-minute brawl. Typical news coverage and headline? Josh Moniz's Walz, Quist clash in first debate in the New Ulm Journal.
They'll be on "At issue" tomorrow morning on KSTP 5 at 10:00 a.m, then again at 5:00 p.m. on KSTC 45.
After the first debate, MPR looked at both men's claims in PoliGraph: 1st District debate examined which concluded:

But on two claims about the cost of the new health care law, both candidates leave out important context that make their statements somewhat misleading.
Via KEYC-TV, here are the greatest hits of the first debate:
