MANCHESTER/PORTSMOUTH – On September 13, the people of New Hampshire will go to the polls to decide on the nominees for the general election later this year. As one of the most watched races in the nation, the campaign for the U.S. Senate seat here in the state is heating up. As the Senate plays a large role in directing U.S. Foreign Policy, it is incumbent on voters to understand the foreign policy platforms of all candidates they are considering. Through this lens, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is proud to announce a series of candidate events to provide a platform for discussion on how each candidate views the U.S’ role in the world.
Through this series of events, voters in New Hampshire will explore the viewpoints of the candidates around key foreign policy issues. This includes U.S. – China relations, the ongoing war in Ukraine, N.A.T.O. expansion, and more. The opportunity to hear from multiple candidates on these issues and to dive deeply into the conversation will help create a more informed and involved voter. These events will provide the platform for civil and important discussions which create understanding.
“With so many different challenges facing the world today, it is important to make your voice heard through elections,” said Tim Horgan, WACNH executive director. “There are few forums focused solely on the role of the United States in the world and this series is a great opportunity for voters to gain deeper insights into the candidates’ thinking. Creating an informed electorate is one of the most important aspects of our work and vital to a strong and vibrant democracy.”
All of the Senate Primary candidates have been invited to participate in their own presentation on foreign policy. While work continues to confirm as many events as possible, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is proud to announce the following candidates:
All events will be held at UNH Manchester in the multipurpose room. These events are free and open to the public, with the media invited to cover each candidate’s presentations. Audience questions will be taken after remarks from the candidate to further understanding on candidate positions. This is a wonderful opportunity for respectful, challenging, and insightful conversations. It is incumbent on all voters to understand their choices and know what the United States is doing around the world in their name.
