Chris Wallace Tapped to Host First Presidential Debate

Conservative mainstay Chris Wallace has been selected to moderate the first presidential debate between incumbent Donald Trump and democratic nominee Joe Biden. The selection of Chris Wallace to host the debate is (effectively) a win for President Trump, after drawing the ire of the Commission on Presidential Debates and political pundits for requesting/demanding changes to the debate schedule, drug testing policies, etc. Although Chris Wallace’s journalism is highly regarded and he has often been critical of Trump’s behavior and policies, the values and political affiliations shared between the two men align more than diverge.

It’s worth noting that Presidential incumbents have not always been gifted with debate moderators that sail from the same port of call. In 2012, incumbent President Barack Obama had to answer questions from the ultra-apolitical Jim Lehrer of PBS. Lehrer also hosted the first presidential debate with incumbent Bush in 2004 and incumbent Clinton in 1996.

The first debate between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will take place in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sept. 29. The second presidential debate will be moderated by C-SPAN’s Steve Scully in Miami on Oct. 15. The third debate will be moderated by Kristen Welker of NBC and will take place in Nashville on Oct. 22.
