The Athens-Clarke County Democratic Committee hosted viewing parties to watch the Democratic debate for the 2020 Presidential election that took place on June 26-27, 2019 in Miami, Florida. The debate was split into two nights due to the amount of candidates participating. On the first night, locals gathered at Little Italy in downtown Athens to watch as Elizabeth Warren, Bill de Blasio, Beto O’Rourke and others answered questions about health insurance, women’s rights and many other pressing topics. The second viewing party was held at Flicker Theater and Bar and was filled with the same issues, but it featured candidates such as Joe Biden, Pete Buttgieg, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and several others. During breaks, the Athens-Clarke County Democratic Committee gave out T-shirts and asked for donations.
