STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump squared off for the first time Monday, and now Americans can look forward to two more presidential debates and one upcoming vice presidential debate.
On Tuesday, Oct. 4, vice presidential candidates Mike Pence and Tim Kaine will debate. The event will take place at Longwood University in Farmville, Va. It will be divided into nine time segments of approximately 10 minutes each. The moderator will ask a question, and each candidate will have two minutes to respond.
The next presidential debate will take place on Sunday, Oct. 9, and it will be in the form of a town hall meeting. Half the questions will be posed by citizens, and the other half will be given by a moderator. The event will take place at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo.
The third debate between Clinton and Trump is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. The format for the event will be the same as Monday night’s debate — six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator. Each segment will be opened with a question, and each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other.
