On Monday, the Fox Nation streaming service will host a televised debate between Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a replica of the Senate Chamber hosted at the Kennedy Institute. The debate isn’t about an election. Neither Graham nor Sanders are up this year. Rather, it’s about trying to bring sincere, old-school debates back into style at a time when social media and cable news chyrons are king. The Senate Project, as it’s being called, is a byproduct of the Institute, as well as the Orrin G. Hatch Foundation and the Bipartisan Policy Center. Two other debates are already scheduled, with the next set to be hosted by C-SPAN.
