ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus is covering the second presidential debate with an event at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and another at Tom’s Restaurant & Tavern.  

Students, faculty, staff and the general public are invited to watch democrat Barack Obama and republican John McCain participate in the next debate at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 7, at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, 555 N. Central Ave.  

The debates will be shown live on the Cronkite School’s 16 by nine foot wide television screen in the First Amendment Forum on the second floor of the building.  

Catherine Eden, director of the Bob Ramsey Executive Education Program in Arizona State University’s School of Public Affairs, will moderate a non-partisan public discussion following the debate at Tom's Restaurant & Tavern, 2 N. Central Ave.

Eden previously served as director of the Arizona Department of Health Services and as a member of the Arizona House of Representatives. The Ramsey Program is part of the School of Public Affairs in ASU’s College of Public Programs at the Downtown Phoenix campus. Local political representatives will be on hand to answer questions from the audience.
