ST. LOUIS — Washington University in St. Louis is once again in the running to host a presidential or vice presidential debate in 2012.
The Commission on Presidential Debates announced earlier this month that it has received proposals from 12 potential 2012 debate sites, including Washington University. The commission will announce final sites later this year.
Washington University hosted presidential debates in 1992, 2000 and 2004, and the vice presidential debate in 2008. The university was chosen to host a 1996 presidential debate that was eventually canceled.
