The first presidential debate of the season will now be held on the campus of Case Western Reserve University.
In a Monday announcement, the Commission on Presidential Debates said the September 29 event will be moved from the University of Notre Dame’s campus to the Health Education Campus. The event will be hosted by CWRU and the Cleveland Clinic.
Notre Dame withdrew as host due to COVID-19 concerns.
The Samson Pavilion, where the event is scheduled to be held, was previously converted to a 1,006 “surge hospital” for COVID-19 patients.
