On Tuesday, October 14th 2008, UW-Eau Claire Student Senate sponsored a debate mimicking the 2008 USA presidential debate featuring students representing Democrats (Jake Johnson), Republicans (Bobby Hamill and Bethany Aronhalt) and Independents (Abou Amara and Adam Sorelle).
The 2008 UWEC Presidential Debate took place on Wednesday, April 9th from Noon to 1pm in Davies Center. Student Body President Ray French was the moderator and present for the debate were the two election tickets (in ballot order):
Timothy D. Lauer / Meghan R. Charlier Emily Mattheisen / Caroline Wee
The moderator asked the candidates one question at a time and each election ticket was given a minute to reply.
