    After hearing these two men debate it is clear that Jay Fleitman is the better choice. He gives real answer to the real problems facing our country.

      To me it doesn’t really matter who won the debate. I agree that Jay was more aggressive than Tom, but that was a turn off to me. Tom was right in saying you don’t need a ten point plan as a premature solution to a problem. You have to keep an open mind because things change over time. Tom Wesley is a true patriot and has what it takes to repeal Richard Neal. Fleitman sounds bored and disinterested. He clearly could not fire up an audience like Wesley can. Also, Wesley is a true conservative while Fleitman is a moderate at best being from Northampton. Keep in mind the people up there actually like him. That says something to me and I urge all people to vote for Tom Wesley on September 14th and on November 2nd.

    I have met and talked with both candidates and I like Tom, but I have to agree that Fleitman won this debate. I am not much of a debater but it seemed Fleitman was on the offensive and Wesley was on the defensive from the beginning.
    I think either would make a good Congressman, and will support either candidate.
