10 Democratic candidates and their discussion was broadcasted live from Texas Southern University in Houston this Thursday night from 8 pm to 11 pm E.S.T.
Ultimately, the 3rd Democratic debate helped to differentiate between the Democratic candidates, which made it effective for the SPA community. “I got to know the candidates better.” said 9th grader George Peltier.
Senior Henry Burton agreed with Peltier, “It was interesting to hear different perspectives within the Democrats,” Burton said.
However, as the debate took place on a Thursday night, during the school week, many students were not able to watch the debate. “I was planning on watching it last night, but then I was swamped with homework, so I am going to watch a recap tonight,” Sophomore Ellie Dawson-Moore said Friday after the debate.
Although many students were not able to watch the debate, the debate sparked an interesting conversation for students and raised interesting ideas about the current political climate. The 4th Democratic Debate is planned to take place Oc 15, and could extend to Oct 16.
