Clinton’s Veep choice Tim Kaine of Virginia will be the hometown favorite taking on Mike Pence of Indiana, the governor who joined Trump’s ticket on July 16. The event will be moderated by CBS News’s Elaine Quijano, a weekday anchor for CBSN and a stalwart of the network’s political coverage.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9
The second time that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will square off will be in Missouri on October 9, a controversial date set by the Commission given that it will be going up against Sunday Night Football on NBC (it was a move that was decried by Donald Trump, although the bipartisan Commission released the schedule a full year ago). The event will be co-moderated by Anderson Cooper of CNN and Martha Raddatz of ABC from the campus of Washington University in St. Louis, and will be produced in the “town meeting” style. While the moderators for the event will certainly be contributing many questions, the candidates will also face participants in the room and via social media.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19

It will follow the same format as the first debate, and will be moderated by Chris Wallace from Fox News.
