Rivera Asked to be Patched In for Debate

In an unusual arrangement, embattled former Rep. David Rivera (R-FL) did not appear in the television studio with his GOP primary rivals for a debate, the Miami Herald reports.

"Instead, as he requested, he was patched in from outside the West Dade Regional Library early-voting site -- purportedly because he was there meeting voters. As a result, the other contenders in the studio could not hear his responses. After the show, co-host Glenna Milberg wrote on Twitter that Rivera didn't end up campaigning at the site at all, despite the TV station's agreeing to his request in good faith."
