Once again, I'm thrilled to host this Republican primary debate live-blog. The in-person event will take place in Iowa, starting at 9pm EST and will be broadcast on Fox. You can read more, both about tonight's debate at Iowa Stat University and the full schedule of Republican debates for 2012, at 2012 Presidential Election News
I'm the left-of-center observer to be countered by the American Princess herself again, Emily Zanotti, who views politics from the right of center.
The New Hampshire debate (see the BlogHer live-blog of the N.H. debate here) featured seven Republican participants (in alpha order): Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. I thought Michele Bachmann was the clear winner, and Emily felt Mitt Romney deserved notice in addition to Bachmann.
Tonight's debate will include all candidates from the New Hampshire debate (Bachmann, Romney, Pawlenty, Paul, Cain, Santorum, Gingrich) plus Jon Huntsman.
Spread the word, grab some popcorn and join us!
