Presidential Debate at State Theatre

Live Broadcast of the Presidential Debates

Free admission Tues. Oct. 16

Don your red, white and blue, and let your affiliation’s flag fly at The State’s no-charge, 90-minute, live broadcast of the second of three Presidential Debates set for Fall. On Tues. Oct. 16, President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will face off in a town hall at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. Citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues, and each candidate will be given two minutes to respond. A moderator will have an additional minute to facilitate a discussion. Town meeting participants will consist of “undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization.” The first of the three 90-minute debates will be Oct. 3 at the University of Denver and will be devoted to domestic policy. The third and final debate will take place Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., and will deal with foreign policy. The candidates will not be allowed to make opening statements but will have two minutes for closing statements. Both parties will table in the lobby, and a lively debate, led by local political leaders and analysts, will follow the broadcast.

Doors at 5:30; broadcast at 6 p.m.
