Just breaking on Fox News. Five town halls in Broward county have received or discovered a white powder substance. Whether or not this has anything to do with tonights debate is speculative.
The mayor of Ft. Lauderdale received an envelope of the powder and apparently the other 4 were sent to mayors as well.

Evacuations took place at several city halls across Broward County today after officials, in at least 10 cities, received envelopes containing a white substance in the mail.
There was no immediate word about what the substance is.
The cities that received the envelopes include Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Davie, Weston, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Tamarac, Sea Ranch Lakes, Oakland Park, Sunrise, Lauderdale Lakes. There may be others.
There were no threats or messages of any kind included in the envelopes.
Initial testing of the Tamarac powder by fire personnel indicated that the substance does not contain anthrax, smallpox or a similar virus, according the Broward Sheriff's Office. Further testing will be done.
Developing. Expect updates here soon as more information is discovered.
