Campaigning at Case: Presidential Elections, 1892-2008
1996: Rallies, Roundtables and Debates

Activism and analysis characterized the 1996 presidential election on campus. Young Democrats organized volunteers for local and national candidates. College Libertarians hosted presidential candidate Harry Browne. Young Republicans were at Dole and Kemp rallies. CWRU Magazine sponsored a faculty roundtable to discuss election issues. And everyone watched the Clinton-Dole debate.

CWRU Magazine had a special feature on the election.
The three largest campus political organizations and their presidents were featured in The Observer.
As part of the main feature, CWRU Magazine invited six members of the faculty to discuss the issues America faced.
