It wasn't the kind of fight you'd expect to break out in a high school hallway.

The blows delivered were shots of political opinions. Holes punched in policy. A spar over economics and foreign affairs.

It's not what you'd expect from teens too young to vote in next week's presidential primary.

Delsea Regional seniors Nicholas Cairns and Quentin Torres both turn 18 in July, no more than six weeks after the primary election.
