Aug 21, 2017

Not having much of an opinion on Fred Hubbell before

Both the framing and general scope of the questions gives me an initial negative impression. The “job creator” angle, stressing of business experience, all sorts of things I expect from a moderate Democrat or Republican. But personally I would think the “I will entirely self fund, making me immune from special interests” would be something any Democratic candidate would avoid, given that the most prominent politician to have made a similar claim in recent memory is Donald Trump (and not much more needs to be said on that particular topic).
