I, John Bell believe we do not have to address this slavery issue!
Let the people vote against slavery!!
Abraham Lincoln wanted to abolish slavery in territories but it contained slavery but slavery already existed.
Abraham Lincoln went up against John Bell, who wanted to avoid this slavery issue ( the slavery issue was big thing back than and if he wanted to avoid it's probably why he didn't win) also to keep the country united.
Stephen Douglas didn't approve of slavery in territories or supported the popular sovereignty ( which meant let the people vote)
