SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Local supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are planning viewing parties in the San Diego area as the two major-party presidential candidates get ready to square off in the first of three
nationally televised debates Monday night.
   
The 90-minute debate from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, begins at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on multiple television channels. NBC's Lester Holt will be the moderator.
   
Most of the viewing parties require a reservation, and some might already be booked to capacity, so it's best to call each specific venue ahead of time, or check its website or Facebook page.

  • 5:30 p.m., San Diego State University is hosting a viewing party in the theater at the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union. Students will not only be able to watch the candidates square off, but will also have an opportunity to register to vote at the event. Media are invited to attend.
  • 5:45 p.m., San Diego City College Political Science and Associated Students Government present  Presidential Debate Viewing & Discussion at San Diego City College, room MS- 162, on the corner of 16th & C Streets.

The Trump campaign site did not have a mechanism for searching for local watching parties in the San Diego area, and there was nothing on the San Diego County Republican Party's web site or Facebook page indicating a it was hosting a watch party.
