AVAILABLE EXPERT: First Republican debate running tonight

Thursday, August 6, 2015

Queen’s University political expert Jonathan Rose will be watching the Republican presidential debate scheduled for Thursday, August 6, and will be available following the debate for interviews.

In a departure from the norm, Fox News will allow all declared Republican candidates to take part in the debate. Traditionally, a candidate who wanted to participate needed to have an average of at least one per cent support in the five most recent national polls. The change was made due to overwhelming interest in the event.

To arrange an interview, please contact communications officer Anne Craig at 613-533-2877 or anne.craig@queensu.ca at Queen’s University News and Media Services Department in Kingston, Ont., Canada.
