Debate will be on Oct. 15 and virtual, commission says

AFPAK-0003-PC-AK-DSN

The Commission on Presidential Debates has reserved an earlier announcement and says the next presidential debate will be on Oct. 15, as originally planned, but will indeed be virtual, with candidates appearing from separate remote locations.

Earlier today, the Trump and Biden campaigns announced the debate was being moved to Oct. 22, and would be in person. That appears to have been a premature assessment.

Moderator Steve Scully of C-SPAN Networks, who is a former intern of Biden’s and was in 2016 an avowed “never Trumper” will be moderating from the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County in Miami.

It is unclear at this point if Trump will participate. Biden has made other arrangements for the 15th, so at this point, it does not appear there will be a debate at all.

  • Trump shouldn’t participate in this circus. The moderators all ask questions in order of benefit to the Democrats and this fool of a moderator would be no different. If they want to start playing fair, which is probably beyond their ability, Trump would be willing to talk then.

  • Trump is right to call BS on this latest move to suppress him. He is better served to go to the people on his own. Biden is a waste of time and Harris wouldn’t know the truth if it fell on her. People that think these people are an improvement over Trump are the same ones that voted Obama in, so they could be soothed by his voice while he was putting the hose to the whole population of the US.
