President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will square off in Denver, Colorado for the first debate of the 2012 presidential campaign.
Hawaii News Now will air the debate live at 3 p.m. on KGMB and KHNL, and will also have live, streaming coverage online at HawaiiNewsNow.com.
Moderated by Jim Lehrer, the primary focus will be on foreign policy, with special emphasis on issues such as the economy, health care, and the specific roles of government.
"The economy's painfully slow recovery and soaring deficits will be major topics in Denver at Wednesday's first presidential debate," says Tom Raum of The Associated Press.
With just under five weeks until the November 6 general election, the first match-up is an opportunity for both Romney and Obama to win over undecided voters.
The first vice presidential debate is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 11 at 3 p.m.
