DEBATE WATCH -- JUNE 26 & 27
Everyone is invited to join Dems Abroad to watch and discuss the first debates among Democratic candidates for the Presidential nomination. The top twenty candidates will present in the debates, with ten each night. These first debates are widely expected to shape the field of candidates for the rest of campaign.
We'll gather at the George Hamilton restaurant at 152 King Street West at Bay Street in downtown Hamilton. Doors open at 8:30 pm; the debates are scheduled to begin at 9 pm. American citizens will be able to register to vote at the event both nights -- and to join Democrats Abroad if they wish. Drinks and pub food will be available at cost. The event itself is open to the public at no charge.
Today (June 12) is the final deadline for nationally recognized polls which are needed by the Dem hopefuls to qualify for inclusion in the debates. The final information on who will be included in the debates will be available tomorrow.
