MU student Clare Stribling props her feet while watching the first presidential debate at the Mizzou College Democrats debate watch party Oct. 3 at the Ashwood Apartments. About 20 MU students showed up that night to watch the debate. Tom Wright, the vice president of the group, thinks that Mitt Romney came out on the offense, which helped him win the first presidential debate. “I hope President Obama will change up his strategy for the next one,” he said. Wright, Zach Henry, the president of the group, and Dan Stribling, the outreach director, live in that apartment. The Mizzou College Democrats runs many political functions there, such as phone banking, watch parties and general meetings.
