Last night, the GOP presidential field debated their views on many issues, but again and again the idea of constitutional changes came up.

Birthright citizenship, increasing state rights, and reigning in the Judicial and Executive branches all were focal points of the conservative debates. 

What would it take to change the constitution? What would you change?

Guest: 

  • Christopher Phillips, author of the book "Constitution Cafe" and "Socrates Cafe" and former Senior Education Fellow at the National Constitution Center

Phillips will be hosting a constitutional conversation tonight at East Central High School that is free for students and open to the public, who are asked to make a donation.
