Hampton, Va. -- Hampton University’s Political Science/Pre-Law Club and Pi Sigma Alpha hosted their Sixth Annual Local Political Party Question & Answer Forum, which took place in the Student Center Theater earlier this month.
Students, elected officials, and community members came out to hear local Republican, Constitutional, Tea, Libertarian, and Democratic party representatives as they discussed issues that affect the nation in the lens of politics.
State Senator and Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate Ralph Northam stopped by and spoke with the crowd as well.

Ronell Chatmon, Hampton University's Political Science/Pre Law Club President and Vice Chairman of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, said, “I am truly honored to continue to promote political awareness and understanding for the people by continuing this event. It is important for the students to visualize both sides of the isle so we see how people in our society think and act.”
