Ole Miss to Host Presidential Debate

Posted on Mon, Nov 19, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Mark September 26, 2008 on your calendar. The non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates announced today that the first presidential debate will take place in Oxford, Mississippi, at Ole Miss' 1,200-seat Gertrude Ford Center for the Performing Arts.

The other debates are scheduled for Nashville's Belmont College, where Fred Thompson could enjoy a home-podium advantage, and Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York.

No word yet on whether or not locals and Ole Miss alumni plan to tailgate in the Grove prior to the debate.

Participants in the debate to be announced later.
