The value of debates in the 2020 election

A discussion with national political analyst Ron Faucheux.

Presidential candidates are preparing for their first debate in a few weeks on Sept. 29. President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will square off in three debates. The vice presidential debate is Oct. 7. It’s still unclear if Arizonans will get the same opportunity to see a U.S. Senate debate since Republican Sen. Martha McSally and Democratic challenger Mark Kelly have not finalized a date.

While debates are a mainstay in American politics, candidates have more options than ever to get their message across in 2020. We discussed the value of debates and their effectiveness to sway voters with Ron Faucheux, a nationally known political analyst and publisher.
