Candy Crowley Will Be First Female Presidential Debate Moderator in 20 Years
For the first time since 1992, a woman will be moderating one of the debates leading up to the presidential election.
Candy Crowley, CNN's chief political correspondent, will moderate the second of three October debates between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Monday. The format of that debate, which will be held at New York's Hofstra University on Oct. 16, will be a town hall meeting.
Jim Lehrer from PBS' NewsHour will moderate the first debate, at the University of Denver on Oct. 3, and CBS News' Bob Schieffer will moderate the third, on Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.
