ABC News has selected the moderators for the upcoming third round of debates among the Democratic presidential contenders.
Deadline reports that the network named “Good Morning America” co-host George Stephanopoulos, “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir and ABC News correspondent Linsey Davis, who will be presenting questions along with Univision’s Jorge Ramos.
“The next showdowns are set Thursday and Friday, September 12-13 — with the second one contingent on enough candidates qualifying to merit more than one debate,” Deadline reports, noting that if more than 10 candidates qualify the debate will take place over two nights.
“Either way, ABC and Univision — with a Spanish-language translation — will carry the action from Texas Southern University’s Health & PE Center in Houston. It also will livestream on ABC News Live,” Deadline reports, adding: “ABC News said the format of the debate will be one minute and 15 seconds for direct responses to questions and 45 seconds for rebuttals.”
