Sunday debate to use familiar look

Tonight’s town-hall style debate will use a similar look to the past two major debates of the primary season.

Although the debate adds the components of a small audience, the same basic look and feel has been retained.

Notable changes — made to accommodate the change of format — include a round two-person moderator desk, lower profile lecterns with stools and audience seating arranged on carpeted risers, as shown in this photo from a test run earlier today.

The same simple look of blue walls, a stars and stripes motif and printed backgrounds with the text of the Declaration of Independence are still used.
