Online Staff Report
Free and Equal Elections Foundation has moved the final third-party presidential debate between Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein to Monday, Nov. 5, as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The debate was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Johnson and Stein advanced from an earlier third-party debate held Oct. 23 and moderated by Larry King.
