(Cancelled): US Presidential Race: Super Tuesday panel debate in Waterloo on 12 March

01:50 01/01/2020
This event has been cancelled

The next United States election is scheduled for 3 November 2020, with voters across the country either re-electing Donald Trump or voting for a new president.

Here in Belgium, Democrats Abroad and Republicans Overseas will debate the issues and invite questions from the audience at a special event at St John’s School in Waterloo on 12 March. Both parties will also provide the opportunity for US citizens to register to vote.

Speakers include Pauline Manos (chair of the Democrats Abroad Belgium), Ian O Lesser (vice president and executive director of the German Marshall Fund of the United States) and Michael Kulbickas (chairman of the Republicans Overseas).

With the primary process already underway, Super Tuesday on 3 March is one of the most pivotal dates in the election campaign. It’s the day when the greatest number of states hold primary elections and caucuses and is seen as a major indicator toward the ultimate victor.

While Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination, the Democratic race is far more contested with Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren the leading candidates in the running.  

The debate is organised by the American Chamber of Commerce in Belgium AmCham and powered by St John’s International School. It’s free for AmCham Belgium's members, St John's International School students, staff and families, and members/volunteers of the partner organisations: Democrats Abroad, Republicans Overseas, The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), The American Club of Brussels, The American Women’s Club of Brussels (AWCB), The Bulletin, Community Help Service Belgium (CHS), Young Professionals in Foreign Policy Brussels, Fulbright Belgium and Luxembourg.
