Transcript Candidate Spawns Controversy During the heated political battles of 1988, students conducted straw polls, attended issue-related debates, and heard guest speakers — in particular Senator Dan Quayle, the Republican Vice- presidential candidate. Led by sophomore political science major Mary Monasterio, the Speakers Forum Committee of the Student Program Board invited many top political speakers, including Senator Lloyd Bentsen, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, Senator Qualye, Vice President George Bush and Libertarian Presidential Candidate Ron Paul.
