Pizza and Politics Debate Watch Party and Panel

Pizza and Politics Debate Watch Party and Panel is in the past.

Lipscomb University's Pizza and Politics series will host debate-watching parties for all three presidential debates and the vice presidential debate held in October. The Oct. 3 event will be held in Shamblin Theatre and is free and open to the public.

Lipscomb faculty will present expert advise on what to watch for suring the debate, and Tom Ingram, former chief of staff to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and the Senate Republican Policy Committee; Lisa Quigley, former congressional candidate and now chief of staff to Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN); and a Lipscomb student voter will provide post-debate analysis.

  • 7:15 p.m. -- Pizza served.
  • 7:30 p.m. -- Attendees will be polled on relevant issues using wireless "clickers" and coordinators will brief the audience on what to watch for during the debate.
  • 8 p.m. -- Televised debate begins. Tonight's topic is domestic policy.
  • 9:30 p.m. -- Attendees will complete the poll on relevant issues and a panel of experts will discuss candidate's performance during the debate.

Pizza and Politics is held by the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership in partnership with the departments of Communication and Journalism and History, Politics and Philosophy, both in the College of Arts and Sciences.
