A final financial tally indicates Wright State University lost a little more than $1.7 million on the 2016 presidential debate it didnít end up hosting.

The final finances for the debate, released this week, also show the university spent more than $2.6 million on upgrading the main campusí and Nutter Centerís internet infrastructure and repairing the arenaís heating and cooling system and smoke detection system, according to an analysis from the university.

Spokesman Seth Bauguess said the university planned to make the upgrades to the Nutter Center over the next few years anyway.
