Biden Commits To Three Debates With Trump In Fall

The Washington Post reports:

Joe Biden’s campaign on Monday committed to three scheduled debates with President Trump in September and October and criticized the president for taking varied positions on whether and how many debates he would participate in. The campaign’s letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, obtained by The Washington Post and written by Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon, stated that Biden will participate in the debates already planned by the commission, which would be on Sept. 29, Oct. 15, and Oct. 22.

The letter came several days after top Trump aides, including former New York mayor and current presidential adviser Rudolph W. Giuliani, began pushing for four presidential debates, and also called on them to be held earlier than usual so that Americans voting early can make their decisions. That push followed Trump’s suggestion earlier this year that he might not participate in debates at all, a position that seems to have changed with Trump’s slumping standing against Biden in recent polls.

The plan calls for Biden’s running mate to debate Mike Pence on October 7th.
