Democratic congressional candidate Bill Enyart speaks Thursday at the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute. This was the first speech of the Pizza and Politics series at the institute. David Yepsen, institute director, said he wanted to do this early with all three candidates so students and staff could have an opportunity to get involved with the campaign. “We’re about civic engagement and encouraging people to get involved,” Yepsen said. Carol McCann, a thirdyear law student from Olmsted, said there were mostly students at the event. “These kinds of events are more about getting a feel of the candidate and establish a point of contact with these candidates,” McCann said.
