Democratic vice presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine is going to watch the presidential debate at a watch party in downtown Orlando Monday night.

Kaine also will be meeting earlier with Orlando-area Hispanic faith leaders in a round table discussion.

The debate watch party will be held at Orlando’s Church Street Station. It will be open to the public, though RSVPs are required through the Hillary For America website. He’ll be using that site to watch the debate between his running mate Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The faith roundtable discussion will take place at 4 p.m. at Iglesia El Calvario, 2500 West Oak Ridge Rd. It will be his third Florida appearance in 24 hours, after speeches in Miami Sunday evening and Lakeland Monday morning. In Lakeland he’ll be appearing at The Lakeland Center at 12:15 p.m., with doors opening to the public at 10:30. Reservations also are required for that event and can be obtained at the Hillary For America website.

This will be Kaine’s second visit to the Central Florida area. He gave a speech in Daytona Beach in early August.
