President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will face off in the first of three presidential debates Tuesday in Cleveland. The 90-minute debate will be broadcast on all major news networks beginning at 7 p.m. MT. Social media networks including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube will also livestream the debate online.

Moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the debate will focus on a range of topics including the Supreme Court, COVID-19, the economy and “the integrity of the election.”

Democratic Reps. Joe Neguse and Jason Crow will join other Colorado Biden supporters for a virtual watch party ahead of the debate beginning at 6:30 p.m. Supporters can register here.

The Douglas County GOP is hosting an in-person watch party for Trump supporters at an undisclosed location. Those wishing to attend can RSVP here to receive details.

Tuesday’s debate will be followed by a vice presidential debate on Oct. 7, and two additional debates between Trump and Biden on Oct. 15 and Oct. 22.
