It was just a month ago that The Takeaway spoke to Carole Simpson about being the first, and only, female to have ever moderated a presidential debate. Just yesterday, The Commission on Presidential Debates announced that she would not be the last. They announced that CNN's Candy Crowley will be moderating a debate this year.
This development comes amidst a petition started by three high school students in Montclair, New Jersey, who asked the Commission to select a female moderator. The petition, which was started on change.org, received over 180,000 signatures.
Elena Tsemberis is one of the students who started the petition.
