And unlike previous presidential debates, there will only be a limited audience of 75 to 80 people, all of whom will be tested prior to participating in the debate, which will be held on the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University campus.
In another concession to the pandemic, there won’t be any spin room after the debate either. Rather, media companies have to plan interviews with substitutes for the campaigns.
After a coin toss, it was found that the first question of the 90-minute showdown goes to Trump. The President will be on the right and Biden on the left.
The negotiations were described as amicable. Biden was represented by Brady Williamson, an attorney and longtime Democrat. Trump was represented by Rick Ahearn, who also led the debate for him in 2016, and Max Miller, the deputy campaign manager for presidential operations.
