Debate winners Trevor Potter and Jonathan Soros had stiff competition in David Keating and Jacob Sullum but ultimately convinced the audience that unlimited money corrupts government, leaving politicians beholden to its source. With the upcoming election on everyone's minds, the conversation continued well into the night at a post-debate dinner at master chef Daniel Boulud's Boulud Sud. Debate participants, moderator John Donvan, IQ2US donors, and leading political journalists were treated to a menu of roast duck and seared scallops. Photos below.
