The Trump campaign wants to hold the last presidential debate during the first week of September, instead of the end of the month, due to early voting in a number of states, Axios reported on Wednesday.

Citing campaign documents drafted by Rudy Guiliani, the report revealed the Trump campaign wants the third debate moved up should the debate commission decided against holding four debates - a request made by the president's team earlier. "By the time of the first presidential debate on September 29, 2020, at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, as many as eight million Americans in 16 states will have already started voting," Guiliani wrote in a letter to the commission.

The three debates with former Vice President Joe Biden are scheduled for September 29, October 15, and October 22.
