Two US Senate candidates from New York State used Skidmore as the venue for their only campaign-season debate. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand squared

The debate was televised on statewide cable stations YNN and NY1, which also supplied the moderators. Before the candidates and crowds arrived, Emily Zahn ’11, a NARAL–Pro Choice intern in New York City, led a pro-Gillibrand, pro-choice rally, with a busload of activists demonstrating near the campus entrance. —SR
