The Norfolk paper's report on the Republican AG candidates' debate

The Norfolk paper reports here that the primary bones of contention in the debate between Bob McDonnell and Steve Baril were over qualifications and the sentencing guidelines.

I would have thought that the sentencing guidelines and the bifurcation of criminal trials between the guilt phase and the sentencing phase were among the more progressive aspects of the criminal justice system in Virginia.
