BROOKLYN COLLEGE–The Excelsior’s rival paper, The Kingsman, is getting set to host the first USG presidential debate this week.
Currently, there are three tickets on the ballot: President of Young Progressives of America (YPA) Carlos Jesus Calzadilla-Palacio with running mate Nailah Pressley, who’s the vice president of WBCR; former CLAS representative Hamza Khilji with running mate Zain Qureshi, who’s a part of the B.A.-M.D. Program; and CLAS speaker Alyssa Taylor with running mate Ethan Milich, who’s the current CLAS deputy speaker.
“I feel very passionate about having a debate. I think that campaigning on social media is effective, but it is difficult for voters to properly gauge who they support,” Khilji said. “There’s a lot of limits for expressing your campaign on social media, but in person, you can get directly to the point and explain your logic and reasoning.”
