Candy Crowley will defy debate contract


Candy Crowley “reiterated that, like past town-hall debate moderators, she intends to do more than just hold the microphone at tonight’s debate — an intention that has caused concern for both campaigns,” Politico reports via The Political Wire.

Specifically, she intends to facilitate follow-up discussion to questions, which “is in keeping with past town hall debates, but it would defy the expectations agreed to by both campaigns in the co-signed memorandum of understanding.”

The contract specifically says there will be no follow-up questions.
