Trump, Clinton Face Off: Debate Prep, Tactics and Possible Pitfalls

Wednesday night in Las Vegas, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump will meet for their third and final debate.

Since the second debate on Oct. 9, Trump has faced accusations from multiple women that he has sexually assaulted them. With less than three weeks until Election Day, and with early voting already underway, Clinton has taken a comfortable lead in most national polls.

Joining us to talk about the opportunities for each candidate at Wednesday’s debate is Jason DeSanto, a senior lecturer at Northwestern University's Pritzker School of Law, who has worked with political candidates on debate prep.
