The first debate between President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney takes place tonight in Denver, Colorado. The focus will be on domestic policy. All the major networks and cable news channels will carry the debate live.

Trailing in most of the polls, this is an opportunity for Mitt Romney to regain momentum in the race. During the GOP primary, the debates were a major factor. Several times, a strong debate performance propelled a contender to the top of the polls. It happened with Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich. Poor debate performances spelled doom for Rick Perry.

This is a crucial moment in the campaign and invites you to join us tonight for a live chat throughout the debate. The broadcast begins tonight at 8pm central time. Join us here for the live chat starting at 7:50 pm. We will offer insight from the campaigns, instantaneous analysis and also welcome your feedback. This will be a fun, interactive way to enjoy the first presidential debate.

We look forward to seeing you tonight at 7:50.
