YTN hosts Bennett for U.S. Election discussion
On October 24 the Young Transatlantic Network in Brussels hosted former Senator Robert Bennett for a luncheon discussion on the 2012 U.S. elections. Taking place just two days after the third presidential debate, the event focused on the key political factors which will determine the course of the election as well as the policy implications for the winner.
Bennett, who has worked closely with Romney and knows Obama as well, served in the United States Senate (R-Utah) from 1993 to 2011 earning high ratings during his tenure from conservative and activist groups.
The debates and their impact on the upcoming election as well as Romney’s campaign strategy and what a possible Romney administration would look like were talked about. The audience of about thirty young professionals showed a particular interest in the dividing lines and cultural differences in the American society that may play a crucial role in the elections and if the role of religion was not overestimated.
