US Senate Candidates Debate—Charlotte

Free the Vote North Carolina and the Young Americans for Liberty at UNC Charlotte are sponsoring North Carolina’s only all-inclusive U.S. Senate candidates debate Friday, Oct. 17 in McKnight Hall on the UNC Charlotte campus at 7 p.m. 

All the candidates whose name will appear on the ballot, as well as those who have qualified to have their write-in votes counted, have been invited. 

“With most debates this election cycle excluding at least one qualified candidate, Free the Vote NC felt it was necessary to provide the voters of North Carolina with a real debate where the voters are not shown who to vote for, but to let the voters make the decision for themselves,” said Jordon Greene, Free the Vote founder and president. 

The debate will be also be sponsored by the Carolina Liberty PAC, and CAUTION (the activists arm of Charlotte TEA Party). 

Candidates who have been invited include: Democrat Kay Hagan, Republican Thom Tillis and Libertarian Sean Haugh, whose names will all appear on the ballot. In addition, Free the Vote has invited the certified write-in candidates: Barry GurneyJohn Rhodes, and David Waddell

Sponsoring an all-inclusive debate is in keeping with the mission of Free the Vote North Carolina, which is to eliminate eliminating barriers to participation in the electoral process. This event will help give voters the information they need to vote for the person of their choice without the debate holders making that choice for them. 

And if you cannot physically attend the debate, you can watch it live online at, or at Take your pick!
