IN Focus: Previewing Monday’s first Presidential debate

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

It's the showdown many voters have been waiting to see- Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on the debate stage, one-on-one.

The long-awaited debate takes place Monday at Hofstra University in New York, but the target audience will likely be voters across the country, especially in a handful of key swing states that could still tip the election one way or the other.

Recent polls have shown the race getting closer- though Clinton still has an advantage in most polls and in most estimates of the state-by-state electoral college.

In the video above, CBS4's Matt Smith previews this week's debate, and next week's Vice-Presidential debate featuring Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN) and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA).

Clinton and Trump will debate a total of three times before the election:

  • Mon, Sept. 26th at Hofstra University (Moderator: Lester Holt)
  • Sun, Oct 9th town hall in St. Louis (Moderators: Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz)
  • Wed, Oct. 19th in Las Vegas (Moderator: Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace)
