Georgetown University Institute of Politics and Public Service, AP announce debut of GOP national security and foreign policy series with 2024 GOP presidential candidates
WASHINGTON – The Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy and The Associated Press today announced their national security and foreign policy series with Republican presidential candidates will debut on Tuesday.
The first installment of the series will feature former Vice President and Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence in a conversation moderated by AP national politics reporter Meg Kinnard. It will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. ET in Georgetown University’s Gaston Hall in Washington D.C.
The conversation series, initially announced as a town hall-style forum, will now feature one-on-one discussions with the candidates. Each conversation will offer young voters the opportunity to ask the candidates about issues of national and global importance.
In the Oct. 3 discussion, Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence will have a 60-minute opportunity to discuss national security and foreign policy. The time will be split evenly between a moderated discussion by Kinnard and a live Q&A from students.
Along with live audience questions from students at Georgetown, the event will include remote participation from university students at campus watch parties in early primary states who will have the opportunity to ask the candidate questions through a live video feed. Campus partners include Clemson University, Iowa State University and University of New Hampshire.
All presidential candidates who qualified for the first GOP debate on Aug. 23 have been invited to participate in this series. Details for other candidates will be announced as they confirm. The series is not associated with the RNC and are not RNC-sanctioned events
A livestream of each event will be available to AP customers, on apnews.com, and to the general public on GU Politics social media channels (@GUPolitics).
