(Image by Getty Images)

With so many candidates, and not enough time and space due to covid the Lars Larson Show did things a little differently this year. Rather than a full debate, we invited the top candidates on the show, gave them all the same amount of time, and asked them all the same questions, asking them to answer Yes Or No, then expand on what they feel most passionate about. Here is how the candidates responded, click their name to be brought to their interview so you can listen yourself!

These are the “at a glance” responses from the candidates, any fields marked “N/A” means we weren’t able to ask the question because we ran out of time.
