See below for video of last night’s Prince William County School Board debate, which Democrat Babur Lateef dominated. Here are a few tweets by Ben Tribbett, who was at the debate, which give you a feel as to why I say that…

*”Here at tonight’s debate for Prince William County School Board Chairman—- Ds currently hold 5-3 majority and @CoreyStewartVA’s buddy Alison Satterwhite is challenging interim Dem Chair @BaburLateef.”
*”Already Satterwhite is blaming ‘commercial tax base’ for the low teacher pay. Actually she has not been an advocate for the needed funding in 7 years on board.”
*”Meanwhile @BaburLateef helped deliver the first teacher pay increase along with a COLA increase for the first time in 10 years in his time as interim chairman.”
*”Now Satterwhite is talking about advocating for more funding for schools (she hasn’t).”
*”@BaburLateef now talking about his leadership style of no drama, gathering unanimous votes on many issues.”
*”@VoteAlyson bragging about voting against the non discrimination measure in PWC. Perfect running mate for @CoreyStewartVA.”
*”Amazing listening to her ramble about it still being in courts. All right wing talking points, no leadership.”
*”@BaburLateef just have one of the most eloquent answers I have ever heard to a non discrimination question. Will clip it for everyone tonight.”
*”Now @BaburLateef discussing his support for later start times for schools and the benefits students gain from it.”
*”Haha @VoteAlyson now explaining to Dr @BaburLateef about the ‘medical benefit’ on start times but then talks about why she is opposed.”
*”@BaburLateef just said absolutely not on arming teachers. Biggest applause of the night.”
*”After the applause Satterwhite said she hadn’t gotten around to saying it previous debates but she was now also opposed to arming teachers. Funny how that works.”
*”Closing statements now done. If every voter watched this debate I think Lateef would get 90 percent of the vote.”
