The second presidential debate
Date: Thursday, Oct. 15
Location: Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. It was originally scheduled for the University of Michigan, which determined it wasn’t safe to bring campaigns, journalists and guests to the university in a pandemic.
Time: 9-10:30 p.m. Eastern
Where to watch: Assuming this debate is still on in some form, The Washington Post will have an uninterrupted live stream of the debate. It will also be carried on most major news stations.
Moderator: Steve Scully, political editor of C-SPAN
The debate will be 90 minutes long and have no commercial breaks. This debate was planned to be a town hall format, where people who live in the Miami area can pose questions. It still will be, but the commission says that now voters will ask questions to candidates who will appear on video screen rather than in stage in person. The moderator and voters will still be in Miami. Trump immediately threw this virtual format into question by saying he wouldn’t participate if he couldn’t be there in person. Yet it’s unclear whether he will have fully recovered from the virus by then. Biden’s campaign said he would participate virtually.
