Storyline

Incumbent President Tom Hinker and challenger Bill Williams met in April of 2012 for a little-seen debate that preceded all others. Watch as they debate the issues, foreign and domestic, that were on the minds of the American public in that crucial year. Neither Hinker nor Williams had rehearsed their answers prior to the actual debate as this was the first one between the candidates that ever occurred. Moderator Ken Skylighter had not revealed the questions to either candidate prior to asking them of each man. As such, this debate is fully real and wholly the true voices of the individual candidates. This actually took place BEFORE the first debate which was broadcast live on American television. This one preceded it and has been released now for the first and only time. Written by Scott Essman
