Newspaper editors, Lynn University partner to host presidential debate


The Florida Society of News Editors will partner with Lynn University to help host the third and final fall presidential debate, the newspaper association said Wednesday. The debate is scheduled Oct. 22 on the Boca Raton campus.

The newspaper editors group will partner with the university on initiatives surrounding the debate, including education meetings with students and the creation of a news feed on the school’s official debate website, debate2012.lynn.edu.

FSNE also will host a panel discussion with journalists from Florida’s leading papers to explore topics related to the 2012 election.

“Florida is again at ground zero of a hotly contested presidential race, and it is fitting and appropriate to hold a debate in this swing state,” Mark Russell, editor of the Orlando Sentinel and FSNE president, wrote in a statement. “FSNE is pleased to be assisting Lynn in this worthy effort.”
