Did You Know Candy Crowley Grew Up In Creve Coeur?
The moderator of the second presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney drew criticism from both campaigns before Tuesday's debate began.
After a presidential debate, there are usually 3 points of view. Candidate A won, Candidate B won and both sides complain about the moderator.
In the case of Tuesday's Presidential debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, that criticism actually emerged days ahead of the event on Long Island, in part because CNN's Candy Crowley told the Huffington Post she'd be willing to engage the candidates in addition to letting them engage eachother.
Crowley, who hosts CNN's State of The Union Sunday program, grew up in Creve Coeur. She told St. Louis Magazine in 2005, "We lived in Creve Coeur in the ’50s. It was really early on—there were ponds and fields and no Interstate 270."
After the debate, she talked with CNN about the experience moderating the debate and the moment during discussion of the Libyan consulate attack, where she had to in essence, fact check both sides.
