The Commission on Presidential Debates announced this week that Centre College in Danville, Kentucky has been selected to host the Vice Presidential debate on Oct. 11, 2012. This will be the second of four general election debates.
Tickets to the 2012 vice presidential debate will be controlled by the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Centre successfully hosted a 2000 vice presidential debate, a factor Commission Executive Director Janet Brown cited in the 2012 selection, saying, “First, Centre did an outstanding job of hosting the 2000 Vice Presidential debate. Second, Centre’s principal players from that debate are still at the College, and we value that experience. Finally, Centre’s facilities, as good as they were in 2000, are vastly improved now.”
