NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Belmont University’s President Bob Fisher has announced that the school is still on track to host the third and final presidential debate later this month.

Fisher said in a statement Monday that the school is “fully committed” to working the Commission on Presidential Debates and will “follow their lead and guidance.”

The event is scheduled for Oct. 22 in Nashville.

The first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden was Sept. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio. The next debate is scheduled Oct. 15.

Plans for the second debate are now in question following Trump’s testing positive for COVID-19 last week
