President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney face off at 6 p.m. Pacific Time Monday Oct. 22 in their third and final nationally-televised debate, with Election Day looming Nov. 6.
The final debate falls on the last day for Redlands and Loma Linda residents to register to vote.
The focus will be foreign policy, and the moderator will be Bob Schieffer, chief Washington correspondent, CBS News, and moderator for Face the Nation.
The Commission on Presidential Debates issued a statement earlier this month with specific topics outlined by Schieffer for Monday's debate.
Subject to possible changes because of news developments, here are the topics for the October 22 debate, not necessarily to be brought up in this order:
- America's role in the world
- Our longest war - Afghanistan and Pakistan
- Red Lines - Israel and Iran
- The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism - I
- The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism - II
- The Rise of China and Tomorrow's World
The debate will be held at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.
"The format calls for six 15-minute time segments, each of which will focus on one of the topics listed above," the Commission stated. "The moderator will open each segment with a question.
"Each candidate will have two minutes to respond," the Commission stated. "Following the candidates' responses, the moderator will use the balance of the 15-minute segment to facilitate a discussion on the topic."
The debate is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Pacific Time and expected to last 90 minutes.
Some locals have been watching the debates downtown, at Joe Greensleeves and The Falconer.
