The debate will be held from Thursday, October 4 to Friday, October 5 in Washington, D.C. It will be hosted by CNN’s Dana Bash and Anderson Cooper and moderated by Anderson Cooper.
It’s expected to draw a record crowd and generate ratings that will help make the 2020 presidential election the most watched in U.S. history.
The event is the third debate to be held in D. C. in the past four years, following a debate in December in New York City and a debate last week in Las Vegas.
The last time the two presidential candidates faced off was in 2008, when President Barack Obama was up by more than 3 million votes and then lost to former Massachusetts Gov.
This year’s debate will mark the third presidential contest to feature a third-party candidate in the race for the White House, with Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein polling between 4.7 million and 6.3 million votes.
A third presidential candidate is likely to be the best hope for a fourth-party bid, and both candidates have made it clear they plan to run in 2020.
Stein’s campaign, for example, said Tuesday that it is in talks with “multiple partners,” and that it will announce “next steps after the election.”
As a Democrat, Johnson would have to beat Vice President Joe Biden in the presidential race, while Stein has a shot at getting enough support from other Democratic voters to be able to challenge for the nomination.
Both candidates are expected to use the debate to highlight their respective policies.
The candidates will also face off on foreign policy, the economy, health care and national security.
As for the debate itself, it’s expected that the candidates will be able share their views on a range of topics, with the first half of the debate focused on policy issues.
But the second half will be a more personal affair, with Clinton and Johnson discussing their personal lives and the issues that have impacted them.
The debate is expected to bring the debate crowd in Washington’s East Room up to 1,000 people.
But as it stands now, the event will be open to the public, with a small number of seats reserved for candidates.
The third presidential presidential debate is set to be moderated and live-streamed by CNN.
CNN will broadcast the event live on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
CNN’s Jake Tapper, who will be covering the event, is expected at the event as well.
It remains to be seen whether either of the two will be willing to speak on camera for the entire debate.
The two candidates are also expected to take questions from the public during the debate, but those questions will not be broadcast.
The debates are expected the following day, but will likely not be televised, either because of the presidential election or the fact that it’s not a traditional debate.
In the event of a third candidate dropping out of the race, Clinton and Trump will be given the opportunity to finish the race with a third, unofficial debate.
