DENVER — The bread-and-butter pocketbook issues that are expected to decide November’s presidential election will be the focus of the first presidential debate Oct. 3 in Denver, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Wednesday.
According to a press release from the CPD, the debate, which will be held at the University of Denver’s Magness Arena, will be divided into six time segments of roughly 15 minutes each on topics selected by the moderator and announced several weeks before the debate.
The debate will begin at 7 p.m. Mountain time and last for 90 minutes.
Moderators for the three presidential and one vice presidential debates will be announced next month.
The second presidential debate, set for Oct. 16 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY, will be a town hall meeting focused on both foreign and domestic issues.
The third presidential debate, which will take place Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., will focus exclusively on foreign policy.
