Presidential Debate: Centre Wins, EKU Loses

Oct 31, 2011

The vice presidential debate returns to Danville next October.  The Commission on Presidential Debates today (Monday) announced the sites for next year’s forums.  The presidential candidates will face off in Denver, at Hofstra University in New York and in Boca Raton, Florida.   The vice presidential candidates will debate at Centre College on October 11th. Danville also hosted the vice presidential debate in 2000. The Commission rejected an application from Eastern Kentucky University, which hoped to host a presidential debate inside its new arts center.  A total of one-dozen schools vied for that distinction.
