Each panelist focused on their area of resulting in a useful and lively discussion. Dr. Krause said, “The feedback after the event from the students was very positive. One student said they learned more in one hour at the event than they learned after watching Fox and CNN for over 20 hours. He said that it was great the panelists didn’t show partiality and were able to speak to the positions in detail of the two candidates.”


Dr. Joe Daniels said, “We’d like to thank all of the panelists for their time and expertise. The student Q&A was great and I wish we had more time to discuss the important economic and financial positions of the candidates. This was a very useful event and we were pleased with the students’ participation. I know I learned much from the assembled experts.”
