On Thursday, November 10, from 7:00 to 9:30, at One Liberty Lane in Hampton, participating Republican candidates will sit down with Moderator Paul Westcott, of WGIR, to discuss their views on the issues facing the Presidency of the United States, especially as they pertain to the U.S. Constitution. The candidates will pair off in twos to engage in a conversation, prompted by the moderator, allowing them ample time to address each topic in depth. The length of time allotted for each pair of candidates will depend on the number of pairs participating. An audience of approximately 200 liberty-minded voters will be in the auditorium to view this debate and to participate via electronic feedback. At this date, participating candidates include Speaker Newt Gingrich, Senator Rick Santorum, Governor Gary Johnson, and Governor Buddy Roemer.
“The 2012 election may, indeed, be the most significant election of our lifetime,” said Chairman Jerry DeLemus, “and it is imperative that the voters know the person they are voting for. The perspective provided by this unique forum on November 10 may be the one that shows us the candidates’ true merits.” Doors open at 6:30. For additional information, call Vice Chair, Diane Bitter, at 964-4161.
The ‘Grok will be there to live stream (as long as the WiFi signal works) the proceedings and to record it (and put up the discussions later) as well.
