Lynn students discuss debates with Michael Dukakis

On Tuesday, Jan. 31, approximately 40 students from Robert Watson's 200 level Campaigns and Media course and 400 level History Seminar course sat in on a call with former Massachusetts Governor and presidential candidate Michael Dukakis. During their conversation, the classes discussed his campaign against President Bush in 1988 including their two debates. In addition, they touched briefly on the fact that Lynn would be hosting a debate in October. Dukakis stated that all politicians have to debate. However, “there is nothing like a presidential debate,” said Dukakis. “It is the grandest debate stage in the world.”
