FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia's Longwood University will host the 2016 vice-presidential debate.
The Commission on Presidential Debates announced Wednesday that the sole vice-presidential debate will be held Oct. 4, 2016, at the small public school in Farmville, which is in central Virginia.
School president W. Taylor Reveley IV said Longwood's selection was a "proud juncture" for the university, which was founded in 1839.
The school said its efforts to host the debate received strong support from Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Virginia's congressional delegation.
