Dartmouth is a frequent campaign stop for presidential hopefuls, and has previously hosted a number of presidential candidate debates, including the Democratic Presidential Candidates Debate in 2007, attended by all of the major Democratic candidates, including the eventual President Barack Obama. In addition to the 2007 event, Dartmouth has hosted nationally televised debates in 2004, 1999, 1988, and 1984.
The coordination of candidate appearances at Dartmouth is handled by the College’s Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for the Social Sciences, a catalyst for public policy research and education and prepares students for lives of leadership and service in a diverse and globally interdependent world. Every four years, New Hampshire provides an intense experience in presidential politics because of its first-in-the-nation presidential primary. Rockefeller plays a key role in hosting Democratic and Republican hopefuls on campus as well as in organizing nationally televised debates or town meetings.
Dartmouth’s Office of Public Affairs has also taken a leadership role in the production of such debates, handling publicity about the events and coordinating media partnership and participation.
Dartmouth’s co-sponsors for the debate are Bloomberg News, The Washington Post, and WBIN-TV, the Derry, N.H.–based television station which will broadcast the debate statewide. Bloomberg Television will broadcast the debate globally; it will be streamed live on washingtonpostlive.com, which has 16 million users. Bloomberg News and The Washington Post have a syndication partnership that distributes stories to almost 500 newspapers worldwide.
