Tara Mathews offered a question for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a watch party during the second 2012 presidential debate.

COLUMBIA — The Missourian asked students what question they would ask the presidential candidates at a debate watch party in Bengal Lair at MU Tuesday night. 

Here are a few of their replies:

MU student Carlton Slaughter posed a question about the removal of financial aid and how that would affect middle and lower class families. 

Lee Acton posed her question to Mitt Romney. She would ask him about federal Pell Grants and student loans.

Myra Gee would ask about education, foreign oil and a compensation plan for veterans.
