The next Dem Debate is at Otterbein in Westerville Ohio

Source-https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/13/politics/october-democratic-presidential-debate/index.html


Snip-"The Democratic National Committee announced Friday that CNN and The New York Times will co-host the party's fourth presidential debate next month in Westerville, Ohio.

The debate will air live from the campus of Otterbein University on October 15 with the possibility a second night will be added. CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett, as well as New York Times National Editor Marc Lacey will serve as the debate moderators.

Last week, the DNC informed Democratic candidates that the debate would be in October in Ohio and reiterated the fundraising and polling thresholds candidates need to meet to qualify for this event: A 2% polling threshold in four DNC-approved polls and at least 130,000 unique donors including 400 donors per state from at least 20 states.


Snip-"The debate will air exclusively on CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español, and stream on CNN.com's homepage and The New York Times' homepage. In addition, the debate will be available across mobile devices via CNN's apps for iOS and Android, via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Android TV, SiriusXM Channels 116, 454, 795, the Westwood One Radio Network and National Public Radio."

Otterbein to Host CNN Democratic Presidential Debate

Otterbein University (Westerville, OH) — CNN has announced that its next Democratic Presidential Debate will be held at Otterbein University on Oct. 15 and 16. “This is a historic opportunity for our students to join in the democratic process,” said Otterbein president, John Comerford. “This university has a proud history of growing an informed, engaged citizenry. Our students will have a front row seat to the power of democracy.”

Previously, Otterbein University has hosted several Republican presidential candidates including Mitt Romney in 2012, John McCain in 2008 and Bob Dole in 1996. In March of 2018, Otterbein was the host site for former Ohio Governor John Kasich’s final State of the State Address to the Ohio Legislature.

An Otterbein spokesperson said that additional details will be shared as they are available.

6. I believe John Kasich resides in Westerville, and did througout his tenure as governor.

I notice that when Kasich does guest appearances on network shows, an Otterbein sign/logo is behind him. Perhaps they have facilities that he uses when he guests on TV. Or maybe his twin daughters go to college there (or not.)
