The first two presidential debates of 2012 were hosted at the University of Denver on Oct. 3 and Hofstra University on Oct. 16. On Oct. 19, another one was held — this time at MVHS.

Featuring debate captain seniors Sean Lee and Kevin Guo as President Obama and Governor Romney respectively, the mock debate was moderated by senior Christie Lin and coordinated by Junior State of America, a club aimed at promoting political awareness. Topics covered during the debate included gay rights, abortion, taxes and debt. In addition, audience members were encouraged to pose questions to the debaters.
