Will Democrats tune into presidential debate? Maybe not in Juneau, where there’s a town hall meeting


The three Democrats running unopposed in Juneau have scheduled a town hall meeting on June 27, during the same time slot as the first presidential debate. The debate will start at 5 p.m. on CNN, and the town hall starts at 5:30 p.m., Alaska time, at the Mendenhall Library in the Mendenhall Valley.

CNN has released more of the details of the debate, where for 90 minutes President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump will face off.

CNN said it will supply the two with “mutable” microphones, so that if it’s one man’s turn to speak, the other cannot interrupt; their podium positions will be determined by a coin flip.

Neither candidate will be allowed to bring notes, but they will be given a pen, pad of paper, and a bottle of water, said CNN.

In May it was announced there will be no studio audience at the debate, which will be moderated by Jake Tapper and Dana Bush, news anchors for CNN.

The second debate that has been scheduled is Sept. 10, hosted by ABC News. The details of that debate have not been announced.

Juneau leans Democrat and none of the three lawmakers are at risk of losing their seats this November.


  1. Can’t see why they would.. They’ve a!ready decided that Old Yeller won it hands down!!

  2. “Most votes ever!”

    I hope this will at least be shown live, not edited the first time.

    Juneau is hoping the non-reasoning dems will have eyes on local only. Current named president is a constant source of embarrassment

    • If that. The delusion is strong with this community. Remember, these are the peeps that think that cruise ship tourism creates “excess human presence… sullies the sentient, sacred, divine, and living ancestral natural environment necessary for cultural and spiritual health and growth,” and used Covid funds to pay for drag queening lessons. Logic is an inconvenience, at best.
