Brenau University announced on Monday that the Georgia Republican Party on Feb. 22 will hold the third debate of candidates vying for the Republican nomination to the open seat from Georgia in the U.S. Senate on the university’s Gainesville campus. Free and open to the public, the debate will be in historic Pearce Auditorium from 6 to 8 p.m.

“You do not have to probe too deeply into the volumes of international news and punditry to understand the significance of this election,” said Ed Schrader, the president of the private, non-sectarian non-aligned Brenau. “It is our duty as a university to provide forums for ideas, and to engage our community in discussion about the future of our country’s politics and government.”

Although the Gainesville event is open to the public, seating in Pearce is limited. Tickets guaranteeing a spot in the audience are available on a first-come, first-served basis through the state party or the various candidates’ campaigns.
