The first debate is planned to take place in New York with NBC News Anchor Lester Holt as moderator. It will be divided into six 15 minute segments on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced one week prior to the debate.
The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.
