“In addition to hosting Utah’s congressional, gubernatorial, and attorney general debates this fall, we have an historic opportunity to partner with the University of Utah to host the vice-presidential debate on October 7, 2020,” UTDC Co-Chair Karen Hale said. “We encourage all Utahns to engage in the electoral process by listening to the candidates and learning about their positions regarding the most important topics of our time, and then exercise the right to vote.”
