Sarah Huckabee Sanders, ONE Vote 2012 campaigner, shares our plans for the foreign policy debate this Monday.
Thanks to advancements in technology and social media, debates will never be the same. Now millions of Americans are just as focused on Twitter and Facebook during the presidential debates as they are on their television screens. In a sense, Twitter allows everyone to participate in the debate, not just the candidates and the moderator. It allows us to make sure our voice and our message is heard, not just the media and the pundits.
That’s why a few members of our ONE Vote 2012 Advisory Board Committee and ONE staff are setting aside time to live tweet their thoughts, fact-checks, reactions and comments on Twitter during the US Presidential Foreign Policy Debate on October 22. The best part is, they want to hear from our ONE members. Feel free to tweet them, retweet their expert commentary on our issues and share your thoughts.
All you need to do is follow ONE’s hashtag #ONEVote2012 AND the US Foreign Policy Debate hashtags, #debates or #fpdebate. By using the official foreign policy debate handle, you’ll also be adding your commentary to the broader national discussion, giving your tweets on extreme poverty much-needed exposure to Americans across the country.
At a time when many will be arguing and disagreeing over whose candidate was the best, members of ONE Vote will be talking about things we can all agree on. We have some of the America’s top leaders from both sides of the aisle giving expert commentary and answering your questions throughout the night, including that of Gov. Mike Huckabee, ONE US Executive Director Tom Hart, former White House official Tony Fratto and Republican pollster Whit Ayres.
We know you’re on Facebook too — so follow ONE on Facebook, where our Advisory Board Committee and staff will be asking the ONE audience questions about their thoughts on the debate and sharing their insights: http://facebook.com/ONE.
At a time when our country is divided, let’s unite as ONE VOICE on Twitter and Facebook for the final presidential debate on US foreign policy to remind our leaders that saving the lives of the weakest and most vulnerable is a priority we can all agree on.
