WASHINGTON — Encouraging allies to click away in pursuit
of cyber democracy, a coalition of activists is pushing
sponsors of this week’s California debates to ask the
presidential candidates about their plans to encourage
hurricane recovery efforts along the Gulf Coast.
The result: As of Tuesday afternoon, a question asking
the candidates whether they support the Gulf Coast Civic
Works Act, which would pay for infrastructure projects
employing local and displaced workers, has jumped to the
most-voted-for question among the more than 3,800 suggested
for Thursday’s Democratic debate. The same question
ranked No. 3 in votes among more than 3,500 proposed for
tonight’s GOP debate.
Both debates will be televised on CNN.
