President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are squaring off, in a way, with their scuttled second debate replaced by dueling televised town halls several channels apart.
The odd spectacle, which deprived viewers of a simultaneous look at the candidates just 19 days before Election Day, seemed fitting for a race unlike any other. Another campaign ritual was changed by the pandemic that has killed 215,000 Americans and rewritten the norms of society.
Both the Biden and Trump town halls are set to start at 8 p.m. ET. Biden's will last for an hour and a half, while Trump's will last for an hour.
