Crowley: I’ll ‘React’ at Debate

Time for round two. Candy Crowley, the moderator of Tuesday night’s debate at Hofstra University on Long Island, said that she won’t be “a fly on the wall” during the town hall–style evening. “I’m going to react organically to what’s happening,” Crowley said on Monday. In this debate the audience members will ask the questions—although in 2008, moderator Tom Brokaw was criticized after rewording some of the questions. Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on Monday that she “fully expects” women’s issues to come up, although none of the social issues were mentioned during the presidential debate in Denver. Meanwhile, President Obama reclaimed a small lead in a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Monday, indicating Obama is recovering from his poor debate performance.
