Why is an organization based in New York so interested in preserving New Hampshireâ€™s first in-the-nation presidential primary?
â€œNew Hampshire is the only state in the nation where the average American, who is passionate about their countryâ€™s policies and has a dream of running for president of the United States, still has the opportunity to campaign and be heard,â€ says Greg Larkin from Initiatives for Empowerment (I4E), a non profit organization based in Harlem.
I4E is inviting all Democrats who have filed for the New Hampshire Presidential Primary to participate in this three-part debate series that will take place at MCAM and will be broadcast live beginning this Thursday, Dec. 20 at 6 p.m.
The discussion will center on social, financial and foreign policy issues, and the panel will be made up of teachers, bankers and service people. Mike Gravel and Henry Hewes, among others, will be attending all three debates. Future debates are scheduled
for Thursday, Dec. 27 and Thursday, Jan. 3.
What I love about debates like this, is that it gives the lesser known guys the opportunity for a national stage all made possible by Ustream’s free, global platform. Mike Gravel has already been snubbed before by mainstream media. Did you know there are like 45 candidates actually running for President? I know I didn’t.
