Jonathan Brunt - The Spokesman-Review

Here is the first of what should be several videos showing incumbent Democratic state Sen. Chris Marr and his challenger, Republican Michael Baumgartner, give their stance on the issues.

Meanwhile, the videos produced before the primary focusing on the other hotly contested race in the 6th Legislative District remain relevant.

Here are links to videos showing incumbent Democratic state Rep. John Driscoll and his challenger, former state Rep. John Ahern, talking about:

1. Recently approved taxes on candy and soda.

2. State budget shortfalls.

3. Completion of the North Spokane freeway and Attorney General Rob McKenna's decision to challenge the federal health care law.

4. Global warming, abortion and bargaining related to having a police ombudsman.
