UNLV prepares for final presidential debate

Posted at 7:37 AM, Oct 10, 2016
The final presidential debate is just a little over a week away in Las Vegas, and UNLV will take center stage as millions of eyes will be focused on Nevada.
 
UNLV president Len Jessup says security leading up to the Oct. 19 debate is a top priority. He also has to make room for up to 7,000 journalists. 
 
It's a costly endeavor, but Jessup believes it's worth the hassle. The university will reportedly receive $85 million in free publicity.
 
Chris Wallace of Fox News will moderate the third and final debate.
