SPRINGFIELD, Ohio, Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Trump, the Republican candidate for president, has raised the stakes in the policy debate by assigning his national campaign Co-Chairman and Senior Policy Advisor, Sam Clovis, to debate against Clinton economic policy adviser, Austan Goolsbee, an economist at The University of Chicago and previous head of President Obama's Council of Economic Advisors. The change is an indication of increased importance that this debate has for the campaign. The debate is focusing on economic policies of the candidates.
The Debate, sponsored by EF Hutton, will take place at 2:00pm on Sunday, October 2, in Springfield Ohio.
It will be streamed LIVE. To watch it for FREE, register by noon on Sunday at efhutton.com/townhall
EF Hutton decided to stream it live for free as a service to the nation and due to the acute national interest in this Ohio debate.
The debate is attracting a large number of undecided voters who are more likely to be swayed by policy issues than by personalities. This debate could therefore be pivotal as it occurs in Ohio, a battleground state where absentee ballots can be cast just 10 days from the date of the debate.
Sam Clovis is the Trump Campaign Co-Chairman and Senior National Policy Advisor. He has an extensive and broad-based policy background - from national economy to national defense. Clovis has advised many republican candidates, including Governor Perry of Texas, and was himself recently a candidate in Iowa for the US Senate. He participated in the National Security Program at Georgetown University; received his PhD from University of Alabama; received an MBA from Golden Gate University; and is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy. Prior to retiring from the Air Force in 1996, he was Inspector General of North American Aerospace Defense Command and the United States Space Command.
The EF Hutton Town Hall event will be held in downtown Springfield Ohio, the home of EF Hutton's new national headquarters, at the Clark State Performing Arts Center. EF Hutton CEO Christopher Daniels noted that the event is in line with the company's history of providing economic and financial insight for its clients.
"This event continues EF Hutton's tradition of delivering decisive insights to clients – actionable information at a point that it can have maximum impact," Daniels said. "By sponsoring this debate, EF Hutton seeks to benefit all Americans looking for information on policies before going to the ballot box to decide what is shaping up to be a very close election both nationwide and in Ohio, a key swing-state. That makes this debate a potential tipping point."
