She led CBS News’ political coverage throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and was chosen by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) to moderate the vice presidential debate that year.

Is Elaine Quijano Married?
Elaine has never been very open when it comes to talking about her private life. She insists on keeping her romantic relationships private since she sees her career as her identity.
However, in a world where there are exceptions to even natural principles, Elaine is unavoidably going to exhibit some of these as well. Back on 31 January 2016, Elaine posted a puzzling picture where she wrote about her love in the midnight, and it was enough to disclose the fact that she was in a relationship.
She blacked out the photo while refusing to identify the individual in it and even prevented her followers from recognizing him. We are left in the dark as to whether the man in the photo was Elaine’s husband/boyfriend or simply an acquaintance because she has not made any further comments about her alleged relationship or if they are married or not.
