President Trump and Joseph R. Biden Jr. will debate each of their three games with a single moderator, the Presidential Debate Commission said on Wednesday.
The first general election debate on September 29th will be moderated by Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace. Mr. Wallace received high grades for his debut debate in 2016 and is known for his sharp interview style. He is also a frequent target of Mr. Trump’s needle tweets.
The second debate on October 15 will be moderated by Steve Scully, C-SPAN’s political editor and a well-known figure in the Washington media community. Mr. Scully has been assistant moderator for the past few years but has never had a debate.
The Debate Committee reached out to a print journalist, Susan Page, the head of USA Today’s Washington office, to moderate the Vice-Presidential debate between Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris on October 7th.
