With polls showing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton opening up a significant lead over Donald Trump with the presidential election just three weeks away, the Republican businessman will need a strong performance at Wednesday night's debate in Las Vegas. It's the third-and-final face-to-face for the candidates. Trump's goal will be to assure the Republican base, while Clinton could go positive in an effort to encourage greater numbers of voters to go to the polls.
The 90-minute debate will follow the format of the first debate, and will be moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News. It starts at 9 p.m.
PhillyVoice staff writer Brian Hickey will provide real-time commentary as part of our Twitter coverage of the debate as the candidates square off from the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada – Las Vegas.
