From, ironically enough, Fox News:
WASHINGTON â€” All 10 Republican candidates will participate in the the 2007 First-In-The-South Republican Party Presidential Candidates Debate to be broadcast Tuesday, May 15 on the FOX News Channel from the University of South Carolina.
South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson said all the candidates were welcome to make their cases to voters in the state that will hold the first 2008 presidential primary conducted in the South.
“The participants in our debate ensure South Carolina voters and Republicans visiting Columbia from across the country, get a chance to hear candidates for President candidly discuss important issues facing our future. We are extremely proud to host the first truly national presidential candidates’ debate,”
I would also give information pertaining to the Democratic debate hosted by Fox News, but all the Democratic candidates except Dennis Kucinich chickened out because they can’t answer anything other than softball questions. Pathetic.
Therefore, Fox News will continue with a Republican debate which will get much higher ratings than the MSNBC debate.
As always, YD2008 will have the complete unedited video of the debate.
Of course, Fred Thompson will be absent so there will be nobody there to win the debate. Instead, the candidates will just discuss their inevitable demise to the future Thompson candidacy.
