Trump Campaign Reacts To Selection of Debate Moderators
(RepublicanNews.org) – The Presidential Debate Commission announced its moderator selections for the upcoming presidential debates. President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will battle it out with a single moderator for three rounds, according to their August 2 notice.
Fox News Host Chris Wallace will moderate the first debate on September 29. C-SPAN political editor Steve Scully will cover the second debate on October 15. And, NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker will oversee the final debate on October 22.

Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s communications director, issued a statement claiming “some” of the moderators “are clear opponents” of the President, adding that Biden would “have a teammate on stage” to help excuse his “radical, leftist agenda.”
Continuing, he mocked Biden stating that finally, he will meet face-to-face with Chris Wallace after avoiding his interview requests. Of course, as Murtaugh concluded, that depends on Biden showing up.
The debates should be enlightening despite the slate of moderators. On the bright side, at least the commission overlooked CNN when making their selections this year.
