Video Released of Franklin Pierce Debate Featuring Andy Martin

Former NH Senate candidate Andy Martin.

After months of requests from The Saturnalian for Franklin Pierce University to upload video of its August 21 U.S. Senate debate, the University finally added the debate to its YouTube channel yesterday . The video features five candidates for the Republican Party’s Senate nomination in New Hampshire.  Participants included perennial candidate Andy Martin, whom The Saturnalian chronicled here in July.  Former Senator Bob Smith also took part in the debate.

Former Senator Scott Brown, who ultimately won the party’s nomination, did not participate.  Brown is currently locked in a tight race against incumbent Senator Jeanne Shaheen.  Election Day is November 4.

Video of the Franklin Pierce Debate is embedded below.  A special thanks goes out to Graduate Assistant Kirsti Hall of the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication for making the upload possible.
