Biden Campaign Confirms Three Trump Debate Dates

On Monday, Joe Biden’s Campaign confirmed they have committed to three debates scheduled with President Trump. The debates are planned for September and October. They dismissed the Trump teams call for a fourth debate, stating it would cause a distraction and create a “debate about debates,” in a statement issued by Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon. The Commission on Presidential Debates, a non-partisan oversight committee, had scheduled the debates for September 9th, October 15th, and October 22nd. Biden’s currently un-named running mate will participate in the last of the three scheduled debates. O’Malley Dillon has also requested that one of the debates be a town-hall format, so voters can ask direct questions, and further noted that coronavirus concerns will be taken into account to provide for a safe environment. The moderators are to be chosen by the Commission independently; however, each campaign has the option to veto the selections.
