Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are preparing to confront each other face-to-face in the first presidential debate tonight, laying out for voters their vastly different visions for the nation’s future.

The high-stakes Monday night showdown is the first of three presidential debates.

It comes as both candidates are viewed negatively by large numbers of Americans, with Democrat Clinton facing questions about her trustworthiness and Republican Trump struggling to convince many voters that he has the temperament and policy depth to be president.

The campaigns are expecting a record-breaking audience to watch the 90-minute televised debate at New York’s Hofstra University.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Beebe will attend a debate watch party in Sioux City tonight.

Governor Beebe will join other local supporters of Hillary Clinton at Sioux City’s Democratic headquarters located at 401 South Lewis Boulevard at 7:45pm.

Local Republicans have not announced any watch party plans.
