It’s not often that the stately local broadsheet and the feisty local tabloid find themselves in accord, but today is one such instance.
The Boston dailies have pretty much the same take on last night’s Voters First Forum at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire.
Boston Globe’s Matt Viser:
[W]ith 14 candidates fighting for time during a two-hour debate, it became at times a rollicking, political version of speed dating, with each candidate trying to cram as many words as possible into their allotted time.
Boston Herald’s Kimberly Atkins:
For GOP voters facing a crowd of eager presidential suitors, last night’s Voters First forum in New Hampshire was exactly what they need. A political combination of speed dating and Tinder.
Give the edge to Atkins for tossing in Tinder. But nice to see the crosstown rivals think alike on something, eh?
