Clayton State University professors Dr. Joseph Corrado and Dr. Ali Dadpay will be more than interested observers in tomorrow night’s second presidential debate; they will be participants in WXIA-TV’s Presidential Debate Truth Test Watch Group.
Corrado, an assistant professor of Political Science in the College of Arts & Sciences, and Dadpay, assistant dean, MBA director and assistant professor of Economics in the College of Business, will be visiting the WXIA studios in Atlanta Tuesday night as a part of a group of experts from different fields and universities who have been invited to truth test the candidates’ comments made in the debate as the debate happens.
Tuesday’s debate, airing from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. from Hofstra University, will be in a town meeting format and will include both foreign and domestic policy, subjects that both Clayton State professors are well-versed on.
