Cox wants to raise the minimum wage; Taylor doesn't.

This, I did not expect:

"I think it is high time we raised the federal minimum wage far, far above where it is today," Cox said.

Taylor did not answer the question during the debate but afterward he was noncommittal, saying he was open to the issue being discussed in Washington.

I'm no candidate for the Democratic nomination, but if I were, I think I'd run an ad contrasting my support for an increase in the minimum wage with my opponent's opposition to the same, especially if he'd been running ads attacking my supposed support for the food tax. But that's just me.
