Last night, MoveOn.org hosted the first “Virtual Town Hall,” where MoveOn members from across the nation posed questions to seven Democratic candidates for president. (Some Republican candidates were invited also, but all declined.) Campaign for America’s Future helped sponsor the event.
The sole focus of this town hall was Iraq. Future events will focus on health care and the climate crisis.
Members are now voting on “which Candidate is best able to lead the country out of the war in Iraq?”. We’ll offer additional commentary here after the results are announced.
You can see video and read transcripts of the event here. We’ll post key highlights here in a few.
