Al Smith Dinners on C-SPAN

October 18, 2012

This year C-SPAN will once again cover the Al Smith Dinner in New York as it has it previous years. Candidates for president appear at this traditional dinner in New York honoring former New York Governor Al Smith. The challenge is to be witty or at least not bomb. Watch some of the previous dinners from the C-SPAN Video Library.

You can also learn more about Al Smith by viewing our Contenders series. Here is a brief explanation of the dinner and excerpts of previous dinners.
