Exploring The Debate at Wash U

With debate excitement ramping up in the St. Louis area, I decided to check out Washington University the site of the 2nd debate. The site is bustling with activity as the preparation for Sunday’s debate. Here is what it is like to be at Washington University during a presidential debate.
