The debate will be moderated by anchors Maria Bartiromo and Neil Cavuto, who are promising to keep themselves out of the conversation during debate as much as possible, Politico reported. "My goal is to make myself invisible," Cavuto said, according to Politico. Gerard Baker, Wall Street Journal's editor-in-chief, is the other moderator.

"It's so important, more than ever before, to recognize what the point of these debates are," Bartiromo told Fox Business on Oct. 30. "I think the point of these debates in general is to ensure that the voter out there has an opportunity to distinguish all of the candidates, the differences in their economic policy, their foreign policy and also the differences in their leadership style and their governance."
