Saint Mary’s College will not host a debate during the 2012 presidential election, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced today.
The small, private college in Moraga had applied to be one of four sites to hold one of four nationally-televised debates — three for presidential candidates and one for vice presidential candidates — to be held next October.
The University of Denver, Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY and Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. were chosen to host presidential debates. Centre College in Danville, Ky. will hold the vice presidential debate, and Washington University in St. Louis will serve as a backup site.
