On Thursday evening, gubernatorial candidates Jacob Lambert and Walter Paul squared off in their first of two debates before the general election for Cornhusker Boys’ State Governor. This debate was in a town hall format, with 2-3 delegates from each town in attendance asking questions. Both delegates seemed to have a great grasp on the issues facing our state, which will make for a very interesting debate tomorrow morning.
