Our Revolution Congressional Forum
In fact, very well attended.
I'll post more video of the event once I've had a chance to edit it all (its a lot), but for now I wanted to focus on one question in particular. The organizers had a lottery system for the audience members to be able to pose a question to the candidates, which is actually a pretty smart idea because you allow questions from the audience, but it doesn't become a free-for-all and who asks the questions becomes random chance.
Luckily, my number got pulled. Which everyone had quite the laugh about.
Most of the night everyone complained about President Trump, even the Republican candidate that went to a small degree.
Since the Democratic candidates were all anti-Trump, I thought I would ask a question to see if anyone actually agreed with Trump on policy.
Turns out, one of the Democrats did.
Spoiler alert, its Dori Fenenbock.
The question I asked was whether they agreed or disagreed with President Trumps controversial decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
All the Democrats disagreed with it, through Norma Chavez seemed to be very careful with what she was saying, but ultimately said she disagreed with Trump. Fenenbock said she agreed with Trump's decision and explained why.
That drew boos from the audience members.
When she was done speaking, someone from the crowd yelled, "Free Palenstine!" which drew several cheers.
