Live Coverage of VP Debate Airs Tonight at 7 on KSUT


Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence meet at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia for the only Vice Presidential debate of the campaign season.

Tonight's debate will be moderated by Elaine Quijano of CBS news.

The debate format will consist of nine time segments of about 10 minutes each. The moderator will ask an opening question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.

NPR News will provide real-time fact-checking and post-debate analysis, hosted by Robert Siegel.

Coverage airs from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Barrelhouse Blues returns next week.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will debate each other two more times - this Sunday and next Wednesday. KSUT will air NPR coverage of both.
