POWELL, Wyoming — After hosting a viewing and discussion of the Sept. 16 CNN Reagan Library GOP Candidates Debate, the Northwest College Forensics Team will afford the same opportunity Tuesday, Oct. 13, to vet Democratic candidates.
The NWC Forensics Team invites the public to come to campus to participate in an open-forum discussion and then view the debate on a large screen. The evening gets underway at 6 p.m. in the Yellowstone Conference Center.
Members of the NWC Forensics Team will start the program by moderating a discussion of the state of the Democratic race and the likely issues that will be addressed during the debate. Community members and NWC faculty members will be major voices in the dialogue. A post-debate follow-up may be included if time and interest allow.
Handouts introducing the candidates will be provided before the program. Anyone who's interested is invited to watch and contribute or just listen to the analysis of the candidates' rhetorical and political strengths and weaknesses.
The debate hosts CNN and the Democratic National Committee haven’t indicated yet who will participate. Most likely candidates are Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chafee, Lawrence Lessig and Jim Webb.
