Due to the threat brought on by Tropical Storm Ernesto, the scheduled prime time televised debate between Democratic gubernatorial contenders Rod Smith and Jim Davis will not be held tonight in West Palm Beach. The hope is that it will be held later in the week after the weather threat is passed. Last night's GOP debate did not air in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area as the NBC affiliate there was in the midst of Ernesto coverage; it will air later in the week.

I didn't get to watch the show last night, as I'm doing a whole bunch of OT this week...I won't be watching much TV for a few days. From what I've read, it was rather interesting entertainment. Here are the stories from some of Florida's major newspapers regarding last night's debate:

Palm Beach Post (Brian E. Crowley, S.V. Dale, Deana Poole): Crist, Gallagher spar over abortion, honesty

Associated Press (Brendan Farrington): GOP candidates battle for conservative title in governor's race

Orlando Sentinel (John Kennedy): GOP candidates trade barbs in final debate

Miami Herald (Beth Reinhard, Gary Fineout): Debate climax largely missed

Tampa Tribune (William March): Crist, Gallagher sharpen debate jabs

South Florida Sun Sentinel (Anthony Man): Tame start, lively finish at Republican primary debate
