Mark Cuban Gets Front-Row Seat at Debate
Billionaire and media personality Mark Cuban will be attending the first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on Monday.
The Hill reports:
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has announced that he’s accepted an invitation from Hillary Clinton’s campaign to sit front-row at Monday’s presidential debate with Republican rival Donald Trump.
In a tweet Friday night, Cuban referred to the debate, which will be held at Hofstra University in New York, as the “Humbling at Hofstra,” where he expects Clinton to “overwhelm” her opponent.
Just got a front row seat to watch @HillaryClinton overwhelm @realDonaldTrump at the “Humbling at Hofstra” on Monday. It Is On !

Cuban is a billionaire supporter of the Democratic nominee and an outspoken critic of Trump, joining those who have repeatedly called for him to release his tax returns. Last week, he offered Trump $10 million for the opportunity to interview him.
Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon hailed the news early Friday, predicting Cuban will be “fired up” at the debate.
If you have ever seen @mcuban courtside at a Mavs game, you know he’ll be fired up for Monday’s debate. #ImwithHer
