(NewsReady.com) – COVID-19 is impacting everything from employment to airline travel. This week, it also affected the 2020 presidential race.
There are currently three debates scheduled between President Donald Trump and his presumed opponent, Democrat Joe Biden. One of those head-to-heads was going to take place at the University of Michigan. Those plans changed this week when the school decided to cancel the event.
President Schlissel announced this morning that U-M will no longer host one of three presidential debates planned this fall in the run-up to the Nov. 3 election, but that related campus programming will continue. #URecord https://t.co/s3LALg0i6m pic.twitter.com/FdcXTg5QhA

The Commission on Presidential Debates wasted no time in finding a new location, so now it’s set to be held in Miami. The other two events will take place in Indiana and Tennessee during the fall. President Trump would like to have more debates, but so far, Biden has not agreed to this request.
