Snopes reporters are providing live coverage during all of the presidential debates, in addition to the lone vice presidential debate, during the 2020 election year. In this Oct. 7 debate, Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris squared off from Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah, just two days after President Donald Trump returned to the White House after testing positive for COVID-19.
Reporters Madison Dapcevich and Bethania Palma along with Operations Editor Jordan Liles and Engagement Editor Brandon Echter covered the debate. We were also happy to welcome Connor Klentschy, who assisted the team. He is a student of Jevin D. West, Assistant Professor, DataLab, iSchool, University of Washington.
Additionally, our team will be presenting brand new fact-check content (including some spun off from the debates) in the days after, just as we have been doing for more than 25 years. We encourage readers to sign up for our newsletter for our analysis, and to support our newsroom and fact-checking efforts by becoming a Snopes Member.
