Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr. and Paul G. Kirk, Jr., co-chairmen of the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), today said that the Gore and Bush campaigns have agreed to the following debate schedule as announced by the CPD on January 5, 2000:

  • First presidential debate October 3, University of Massachusetts, Boston, MA
  • Vice presidential debate October 5, Centre College, Danville, KY
  • Second presidential debate October 11, Wake Forest University, Winston Salem, NC
  • Third presidential debate October 17, Washington University in St. Louis, MO

All debates will be ninety minutes long.

"We are very pleased that the campaigns have agreed to these plans," the co-chairmen said. "The American public can look forward to four substantive discussions of the issues central to this general election."

The debate invitation to these campaigns is subject to the application of the CPD's Nonpartisan Candidate Selection Criteria to be applied later this month.
