One of several watch parties for the first televised debate between the presidential candidates will be held at Saint Ambrose University. Prior to the party Monday night, the university will host a pre-debate forum.

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stopped in the Quad Cities today for a volunteer canvass. Around 150 people attended the campaign stop in Davenport--many were there to volunteer for Sanders, a Democrat.

Lisa Lewis Garman from Davenport helped organize canvass routes today, and has been volunteering since September. Once she decided she supported Sanders, her next step was to donate her time to his campaign.

 

While most volunteers are canvassing door-to-door, Air Force Veteran Nick Tsacudakis, from Davenport, says he's been helping out in other ways.
