By far the oddest moment at the event was when Summers had the opportunity to ask Dill a question, and rather than challenge her on energy or environmental issues (the intended subject of the debate), he instead asked whether she agreed with Obama's timetable for getting out of Afghanistan, where Summers, a Navy reservist, served as a public-affairs officer in 2010. (Dill does agree with Obama.)
Surprisingly not much mention was made of recent TV and radio ads, purchased by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, that question King's involvement with and profits from wind-energy development. Lucky break.
