Some 65 guests from the greater Leipzig community attended a lively roundtable on the presidential primaries and what they indicate so far as to whom could be the next president of the United States.

The roundtable consisted of Mark Wenig, Consul for Public Affairs at the U.S. Consulate in Leipzig, Fulbright-Leipzig Professor Ben Alpers, and Professor Crister Garrett from the Institute for American Studies.

Panelists opened up with brief statements about the key factors they see shaping the election, and whom they see as probable favorites (very hard to say!).

The discussion was quickly opened up to the floor, and many good questions were posed by students, high school teachers, and citizens of Leipzig.
