Ireland Holds 7-Candidate Presidential Debate

Ballot Access News:

On October 4, the seven candidates for President of Ireland held a televised debate. This story about that debate was written just as the debate was beginning.

If the United States held inclusive general election presidential debates, and invited every candidate who was on the ballot in enough states to theoretically be elected, there would never have been a U.S. presidential election with a number of candidates greater than seven who would have been eligible for such debates. In 2008 and 2004 there would have been six such candidates.

    For the sake of openness, I am an Irish Republican born in the US. I have many family members who have died or did time because of the conflict in the north of Ireland.
