The Town Hall will feature Senator Tim Kaine (D) and Corey Stewart (R), candidates for U.S. Senate in Virginia. Liberty University hosted the first Town Hall on Thursday, September 20, in Lynchburg, Va.
Hampton University will broadcast the Town Hall live via various radio and television news outlets all across the Commonwealth of Virginia. It will also be live streamed through both Hampton and Liberty universities’ web properties.
The co-moderators for the Town Hall will be Hampton University’s, April Woodard, an award-winning journalist and professor at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communication, and WTKR news anchor Les Smith. The Town Hall format will include questions posed by the moderators as well as Hampton University students.
The Liberty University-hosted Town Hall focused on Domestic policy and the Economy. Building upon those topics, the Hampton University-hosted event will focus on Foreign Policy and Defense. Both celebrated universities are committed to highlighting student interests and their observations of the current political climate.
The Hampton University-hosted Town Hall will provide, visitors and viewers alike, another substantive, high quality production for the people of Virginia, ahead of the Nov. 6, mid-term elections.
