The highly anticipated first presidential debate begins Monday at 9 p.m. ET at Hofstra University on Long Island.

While all eyes are on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, moderator Lester Holt will share some of the spotlight. Both campaigns and the general public are curious to see how strict the NBC anchor will be when it comes to fact-checking the candidates.

NPR’s Domenico Montanaro joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to preview tonight’s debate.
