Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law Professor Hugh Hewitt will again pose questions to the 2016 Republican presidential candidates tonight during the next Republican primary debate, which airs on CNN, Telemundo and the Salem Radio Network at 5:30 p.m. PST.
Professor Hewitt will join CNN’s Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash and Telemundo News anchor Maria Celeste Arras as a co-panelist for the evening. Wolf Blitzer will serve as moderator. This is the third time this year that Professor Hewitt has participated in the presidential debates. He has also conducted numerous and regular interviews with the presidential candidates on his nationally syndicated radio show, inspiring a profile in The Washington Post entitled “Who is Hugh Hewitt?” and ranking on Politico Magazine’s Politico 50 list leading up to the second Republican debate.
For more than 20 years, Professor Hewitt has been teaching classes and serving integral roles in faculty governance (including chairing at one time or another almost every major faculty committee) at Fowler School of Law. Professor Hewitt’s constitutional expertise and high-level governmental experience make it fitting that the principal course he teaches is Constitutional Law. Hewitt also serves as the faculty advisor to one of Fowler School of Law’s two student-edited law journals, the Nexus Journal of Law & Policy. Professor Hewitt maintains this vibrant presence as a leader in the law school community, while also excelling as a lawyer, broadcast journalist and columnist at the same time.
