Though no specific changes were announced yet nor a specific date of that announcement given, CPD's Wednesday statement went on to say that careful considerations would be taken in what changes would be made, and that the new measures would be announced "shortly."

The CPD did thank Tuesday night's moderator, Chris Wallace, for his "professionalism" and "skill" at the debate.

"The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates," CPD's statement concluded.

The Commission on Presidential Debates was established in 1987 and has sponsored all presidential debates since 1988.
