Bishop, Altschuler Debate in Smithtown

Friendlier tone reported at Fairfield at St. James debate hosted by the League of Women Voters of Smithtown.

As Congressional candidates Rep. Tim Bishop and Randy Altschuler kicked off their debate schedule last week on the East End, Monday night they took to St. James, where the League of Women Voters of Smithtown hosted a debate at the Fairfield at St. James community.

Bishop, D-Southampton, according to the report praised Altschuler's work ethic. Meanwhile the Republican from St. James gave a nod to the Democrat's conviction in his beliefs.
