Utah Senate Debate

Utah Valley University is proud to welcome candidates running for the 2010 United States Senate seat that is being contested this election year. Engaging in debate Friday, April 2 at UVU are willing candidates Senator Bob Bennett (R incumbent), Mike Lee (R), Tim Bridgewater (R), Cherylin Eagar (R), Merrill Cook (R), and Sam Granato (D). The Senatorial debate is sponsored by the UVU Student Association (UVUSA).

“This debate is unique because it has been completely student-driven. We are an engaged University and with that comes immense civic responsibility for the students here,” said Christina Lowe, UVUSA chief justice. “Many clubs and organizations have collaborated with UVUSA to host this debate. UVUSA feels that this collaboration of these organizations is key to helping students become more civically engaged.”

The debate will begin at noon in the Lakeview Room, on the fourth floor of UVU’s Library. In addition to UVUSA, other student group sponsors for the debate include UVU College Republicans and Young Americans for Liberty. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend “and to learn the standpoints of all of the candidates before the upcoming elections,” Lowe said.
