Boca Raton Presidential Debate Not A Sell Out, Yet

News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — More than three thousand journalists are expected to be on location for the Presidential debate this week between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama at the University of Denver.  However, credentials for the October 22nd debate scheduled for Lynn University here in Boca — at least for now — seem to be slightly less in demand.
A spot check of area hotels this morning reveals that rooms are still available throughout the area. Many of the chain hotels and motels in Boca Raton — just miles from Lynn University — are showing availability online.
News organizations traditionally book rooms in bulk, well in advance of a major planned event to house journalists and support staff.
One national news observer suggests that national organizations are waiting to see polling data and outcome of the first two debates to determine how much money should be spent — and what resources should be committed — to covering the Lynn University debate on location.
