For Immediate Release
What: Presidential Debate (with Virgil Goode)
When: Sunday, November 4, 2012
Time: 7:30-9:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Washington, D.C. – The candidates* from four political parties – Gary Johnson (Libertarian), Jill Stein (Green), Virgil Goode (Constitution) and Rocky Anderson (Justice) – will meet for a two-hour debate on Sunday, November 4, 7:30 p.m. at Busboys and Poets restaurant located at 2021 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20009. Busboys and Poets is a well-known venue for frequent political, civic and cultural events.
The debate will be moderated by Ralph Nader and will focus on subjects and issues that have largely been ignored or avoided by the 2012 Republican and Democrat presidential candidates, as being too controversial. The questions and exchanges in the Obama/Romney debates have been cautiously circumscribed, predictable, scripted and repetitious. This debate will highlight little-discussed major topics which reflect widespread popular interest, either by way of support or opposition.
The event is open to media only. An RSVP is requested to Ralph Nader at email@example.com or 202-387-8034.
* Gary Johnson was an entrepreneur before being elected to two terms as governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003. Jill Stein was a practicing, Harvard-trained physician, former candidate for local and state offices, and a successful author. Virgil Goode was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1997-2009. Rocky Anderson was Mayor of Salt Lake City for two terms (2000 – 2008) and a practicing civil rights lawyer.
