Reporters covering the third presidential debate here are bundled up in coats, scarves, even gloves.

That’s because the press filing center at Saint Anselm College is on a 200-by-85-foot ice rink at the Thomas F. Sullivan Arena, home to college’s men's and women’s ice hockey teams.

A memo sent to reporters by organizers this week warned reporters to bundle up. They weren’t kidding.

Hundreds of reporters were each given a pair of hand and toe warmers to use during the Saturday night debate.
