President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Gov. Mitt Romney will go head to head in the second of three Presidential debates during the 2012 campaign season tonight at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

The event will be moderated by Candy Crowley, Chief Political Correspondent and anchor of CNN's State of the Union. It will utilize a town hall-style format, where questions will be directed at the candidates by voters, instead of moderators or journalists.

Tonight's debate chat will be hosted by NPR's It's All Politics blogger Frank James and will feature commentary and opinions from NPR reporters and listeners.
