Why Are There Only 2 Candidates In The Presidential Debates?

That’s because 3 Presidential debates are not run by the Government but are run by a non profit organization the Commission on Presidential Debates or the (CPD) which was created in 1987 by the Democratic and Republican parties as a bipartisan – rather than a nonpartisan – effort.

There are seven national sponsors of the CPD and they are as follows:

Anheuser-Busch Companies
The Howard G. Buffett Foundation
Sheldon S. Cohen, Esq.
Crowell & Moring LLP
International Bottled Water Association (IBWA)
The Kovler Fund
Southwest Airlines
