In one corner, you have Spokane-area state senators Michael Baumgartner, a Republican, and Andy Billig, a Democrat. In the other, it’s Rogers High debaters Rylee Cesal and Hana Knowlton. The event? The second edition of “Rhetoric in the Ring,” in which local politicians verbally battle students in a benefit for the Rogers High School Debate Club. Enjoy all manner of zingers, one-liners and knowledge-dropping by some of the area’s finest minds. And from the politicians, too.
