Delaware's major-party candidates for the United States House of Representatives and Senate races met at the University of Delaware's Mitchell Hall Auditorium on Wednesday evening, October 17, for Delaware Debates 2018, a joint initiative of the University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication (CPC) and Delaware Public Media (WDDE 91.1, WMPH 91.7 and WMHS 88.1). The event marked the fifth biennial Delaware Debates, an initiative that began in 2010.
Ralph Begleiter, founding director of the Center for Political Communication and former CNN journalist, returned to the University of Delaware to moderate. He posed questions about key issues in Delaware such as economic and job-growth policies, immigration, health care, gun violence, improving public education, legalization of marijuana, and climate change. University of Delaware and Delaware State University students also presented questions to the candidates by video.
