COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Democratic National Committee says the party’s October presidential debate will take place at a small university in Ohio.

The debate hosted by CNN and the New York Times is to be held at Otterbein University in Westerville in central Ohio.

The debate is Oct. 15 and possibly the next night if additional candidates qualify based on polling numbers. Otterbein is a private liberal arts college with enrollment of around 2,400.

The city of Westerville was long known as the home of the Anti-Saloon League, which led the fight for Prohibition.

Today the suburb regularly tops lists of desirable residential communities, with Money Magazine twice naming it as one of the country’s best places to live.
