"Remember, remember, the 5th of November," is the battle cry of the third-party candidates — Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who have emerged from the previous third-party debate to earn a spot at the podium for Monday evening's debate. The third-party debate starts at 6 p.m. and will focus on international issues and foreign policy.

The first debate, which also featured Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, and Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson, took place Oct. 23, moderated by Larry King. You can view that debate in its entirety here. The second debate was originally scheduled for Oct. 30, but was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy.
Tonight's debate is sponsored by Free and Equal Elections Foundation.
Third party candidates must achieve 15 percent support across five national polls to be included in debates sanctioned by the Commission on Presidential Debates. Two weeks ago Johnson filed suit in federal court against the commission, and has launched a "waste your vote on me" campaign.
Stein and her running mate, Cheri Honkala were arrested outside of the final Presidential debate at Hofstra University, following a brief protest outside the venue of their exclusion.
The Nov. 5 debate will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time from RussiaToday America's Washington, DC, studio.
