Debate watch party to bring Democrats, Republicans together at UIS

Those watching the final presidential debate of 2012 Monday will include a bipartisan group at the University of Illinois Springfield campus, with college Democrats and Republicans each hoping for a good showing from their respective favorite candidate.

And those who attend will also get to talk about what they saw once the debate ends, with political science professors overseeing a post-debate discussion.

The free and public debate event at the Homer L. Butler Housing Commons at UIS is sponsored by the college party organizations as well as the UIS Global Issues Club. The gathering will begin about 7:30, and there will be refreshments. The debate is at 8 p.m.

The watch party was featured by the State Journal-Register on October 22, 2012.
