The Arizona Republican Party and CNN have agreed to partner on a proposed Dec. 1 GOP presidential debate to be held in Arizona.
Gov. Jan Brewer made the announcement in this press release in which she expressed delight that CNN will be involved.
“I’ve been in politics a long time, but I can’t remember a more critical election than this,” Brewer said. “When it comes to some of the hallmark issues facing our country — whether illegal immigration, the housing crisis or the ongoing power struggle between the states and federal government — Arizona is at the forefront. These are national issues, certainly. But Arizonans live and breathe them.”
CNN’s participation ensures that the debate will be viewed worldwide. A venue for the event has yet to be decided.
