Policy Highlights from the First 2024 Presidential Debate

Brownstein Client Alert, June 28, 2024

On June 27, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump participated in the first of two planned presidential debates. The event took place in Atlanta, Georgia, and was hosted by CNN without an in-person audience. This marks the first time since 1988 that general election debates were organized without the involvement of the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). The candidates were generally given two minutes to respond to questions, followed by the opportunity to deliver one-minute rebuttals. In addition, their microphones were muted between turns.
