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. Online voters watching the debate selected Johnson and Stein to advance to a final debate from a field that also included Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode and Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson.
The Nov. 5 debate will be from 8 to 9:30 p.m. (Central) at RT America’s state-of-the-art studio and facility. RT America will open its studio and offer a live, neutral feed via satellite to interested media. The moderator has yet to be announced.
