Univision to Host Obama, Romney Events

Univision said that it will hold "Meet the Candidate" events with President Obama and Mitt Romney that will address issues of importance to Hispanics.

Both candidates have confirmed their participation, Univision said, although details have not been announced.

When the Commission on Presidential Debates announced their lineup of moderators, Univision objected that a Hispanic was not chosen. Instead, it proposed that the commission add another forum aimed at the Hispanic audience, but the idea was rejected.

Univision's events will be moderated by Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas, and will be produced in partnership with Facebook.
