Estudiantes Con Gore pleased with vice president's
At the third and final presidential debate last night, the two candidates addressed healthcare and affirmative action - two topics important to members of the UA Latino community.
A group of 25 University of Arizona students - comprised mostly of Latino students but also three Young Democrats club members - gathered in the Chicano/Hispano Student Affairs center in the Economics building to watch the debate.
About 20 UA students are involved with Estudiantes Con Gore, a national organization under the Al Gore campaign, which encourages Latino college students to learn about the campaign process.
Christina Vejar, a political science and Mexican-American studies senior, said she contacted the Latino outreach director at the Gore headquarters in Nashville, Tenn. to find out how to get UA Latino students active.
