President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will meet again tonight for the second debate of their tight-as-can-be race for the White House.
Romney reset the campaign Oct. 3 at the first debate in Denver, which viewers in multiple polls judged as a victory for the Republican.
Tonights event will be a town hall-style debate, with questions coming from invited guests at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. Participants will be undecided voters selected by Gallup, a national poling firm.
Candy Crowley of CNN will moderate the debate. Questions will deal with foreign and domestic topics.
Every major television network and cable-news network will carry the debate from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Serious political junkies who have cable can tune in to C-SPAN starting at 5 p.m. for a debate preview.
The third and final debate will be held next Monday, and it will focus on foreign policy.
