The Audience Debates the Presidential Candidates was held Thursday last week by PRIDE, Political Science Association, College Students for Individual Liberty, University of Michigan-Dearborn College Republicans, and Young Americans for Liberty and sponsored by SOAC.

The debates allowed students to discuss many vital issues present during this presidential race. Subjects debating included domestic issues, foreign policy, and abortion.

“Most people didn’t have to say which candidate they supported. It was just obvious,” Student Government President Dennis Lienhardt said.

PRIDE President Anthony Wagner moderated the debates. The subject of abortion produced a heated discussion that was eventually stopped to allow talk on other matters.

“It was really good to come together with people about a lot of different issues instead of just seeing what the media has to say,” Lienhardt said.
