College Republicans and College Democrats To Debate Wednesday
Just a few hours after Chelsea Clinton is expected to arrive in State College, the College Republicans and College Democrats will kick off their first debate of the semester. The Penn State Speech & Debate Society and the Political Science Association will host the debate at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Freeman Auditorium.
Previous debates between the College Republicans and the College Democrats focused around one or two specific topics, and Wednesday’s event will be no different, despite the upcoming presidential election and the recent controversy surrounding College Republicans in their decision not to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The two organizations will discuss whether the United States should keep sanctions on Iran and whether the government should raise the minimum wage.
The event was moved to Freeman Auditorium due to an increase in popularity, according to the event’s Facebook page.
