Elements of the Ohio National Guard have been be called up to provide support for the first 2020 Presidential Debate, scheduled for next Tuesday in Cleveland and the Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner School of Medicine Auditorium.
Cleveland’s Mayor Jackson may also impose a curfew to help maintain order, as was done after the May riot earlier this year.
The east-side neighborhoods that surround the campus where this debate will be held are not the most secure in the county. Resident’s in these areas, and in Cleveland’s surrounding inner ring suburbs including East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, and Shaker Heights should prepare with appropriate caution.
