Third and final presidential debate tonight

NEW YORK (AP) -- The presidential candidates are getting ready for one final side-by-side comparison.

The third presidential debate, at Hofstra University on New York's Long Island, is intended to focus on the economy and domestic policy -- though voters heard a lot on those subjects at the first two.

John McCain and Barack Obama will be seated at a desk with the moderator, Bob Schieffer of CBS.

Both candidates released proposals this week for how to boost the economy.

With polls favoring Obama in a growing number of states, the stakes in this last debate are higher for McCain. He unveiled a possible debate strategy yesterday: the argument that on the economy, he'll be different from President Bush and better than Obama.

You can watch the debate live tonight at 8:00 p.m. on KWWL.

Online Producer: Mike Verlo
