Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump face off for the first time on the debate stage Monday night, the biggest moment of the already extraordinary 2016 presidential race.

With national polls showing a tight race just six weeks out from Election Day, the Hofstra University fight offers one of the last chances for each to speak directly to the tens millions of voters who are expected to tune in.

For Clinton, a veteran debater, one of her biggest challenges will be both to provoke Trump and avoid being provoked by him, while delivering an earnest and candid performance.

When is it?

Monday, Sept. 26 from 9-10:30 p.m. You can watch it LIVE on Cleveland 19. The debate will be commercial free.

Where is it?

New York’s Hofstra University in Hempstead. Wright State University in Dayton, OH was scheduled to host the initial debate but bowed out in July citing security concerns and costs.


Who will be moderating?

NBC “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt. This will be Holt’s first time moderating a presidential debate.

What are the topics? 

Three major topics selected include: “America’s Direction,” “Achieving Prosperity,” and “Securing America.”

The debate will be divided into six, 15 minute segments. Each candidate will have two minutes to respond to each question.
