The third debate between US presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has ended. It was held on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). You can watch the replay above and check out the live blog we ran below.

Moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News has announced the six topics he has selected for candidates to take questions on. They are debt and entitlements, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign hot spots, and fitness to be president. Wallace has said he doesn’t intend to fact check the candidates as they answer, leading to some early criticism of his approach.

Trump has invited Barack Obama’s half brother, an avowed Trump supporter who lives in Kenya. Hillary Clinton has invited Mark Cuban, a billionaire supporter of her campaign, and Meg Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett-Packard and a Republican who once ran for governor of California.

For Hillary Clinton, though, the debate offers her the chance to publicly address the recent Wikileaks release of hacked emails from the account of John Podesta, the chairman of her campaign, which include transcripts of her paid speeches to Goldman Sachs. There is is also speculation that questions about Benghazi, Clinton’s health, and other Republican concerns about her fitness for office will, after remaining largely absent from the first two debates, finally be part of the discussion tonight. Viewers will be watching to see if Trump can keep his cool, or if his decline in the polls might goad him into upping the intensity of his attack.
