Rivals spar in 1st debate

Tierney, Tisei and Fishman face off over range of issues

(Continued)

With all the mudslinging, little-known third-party candidate Fishman may have appealed to some voters yesterday. Far from outmatched, Fishman was well-spoken and thoughtfully made the case for putting a self-described “common man” in Congress.

“I believe Congress can work together, but before that can happen, it needs to again be a government of the people for the people and by the people,” said Fishman, a software architect.

“I am an average guy running for office,” he continued later. “We need a voice that is not Republican, not Democrat, but for the people, and that voice needs to be heard now. Common sense requires common people.”
