WINSTON-SALEM (AP) -- Wake Forest University wants to be in the middle of the 2008 race for The White House.
A university official says the school will submit an application this week to the Commission on Presidential Debates in Washington, DC.
Senior adviser to the president Sandra Boyette says the school has to provide a lot of information, including where it plans to hold the debate, how to keep the campus secure and if Winston-Salem is ready to be a host.
Wake Forest hosted a 1988 debate between George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis, and the 2000 debate between George W. Bush and Al Gore.
The university says it expects to find out by October whether it's been chosen by the commission.
