The New York Presidential Primary is coming up on Tuesday, February 5, 2008, and all candidates on the primary ballot have been invited to speak at this forum. PeaceSmiths has also welcomed all presidential candidates – including major party, alternative party, and independent candidates. We are excited to report that we already have confirmation that we will have representatives from the John Edwards, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama, and Ron Paul campaigns present. We expect more candidates to report in (the invitations just went out.)

There will be time set aside for questions from the audience.
