In a race that could determine the balance of power in the state Senate, Josh Robin moderated a debate between Democratic challenger Andrew Gounardes and Republican incumbent Marty Golden, in a rematch for Brooklyn's 22nd district.

The candidates debated:

  • If the state legislature would be best served with Republicans keeping Democrats in check.
  • What the next state senator can do to reduce property taxes.
  • Golden's numerous driving violations and opposition to speed cameras.
  • Allegations that Golden doesn't pay women staff members equally.
  • If parolees should have been given back their right to vote.
  • What the state Senate needs to do to address the transit crisis.
