WASHINGTON (CNN) - The majority of the Democratic presidential candidates said in Wednesday's New Hampshire presidential debate they would support a national smoking ban in public places.
When asked the question, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama only said they supported efforts at local levels to prevent smoking in public places. The rest of the candidates indicated they would seek a national ban to do so.
Meanwhile, when it comes to the drinking age, only former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel and Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich said they were in favor of lowering it to 18 - an answer that was well received by the Dartmouth College crowd. Kucinich added that he supports lowering the voting age to 16.
