Workers enter the debate hall ahead of Monday's presidential debate between Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.

President Barack Obama and challenger Gov. Mitt Romney go toe to toe for the third and last time of the Presidential campaign season tonight at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.

The event will be moderated by Bob Schieffer of CBS, and the planned topics will focus principally on foreign policy. At issue will be both candidates' vision for America's role in the world, specifically as it concerns turbulent areas like Afghanistan and Pakistan, Israel and Iran, the rise of China, and so on. The debate will be broken into six 15-minute segments, wherein the moderator will ask a question, each candidate will be given two minutes to respond, and the remaining time will be spent on discussion.

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.
