The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library has announced May 2, 2011, will be the date for the first presidential debate for Republican candidates.

The debate at the library in Simi Valley, Calif., will be moderated by NBC anchor Brian Williams and Politico Editor in Chief John Harris. A reporter from Telemundo will also participate in the questioning.

The first GOP debate of the 2012 presidential campaign will air on MSNBC, Politico.com, CNBC and Telemundo.

I spoke with a lady from the Reagan Foundation who told me that ticket information should be available on the first week of April, so be sure to check the Reagan Library website then if you want to be first in line to get tickets.

Well, that is more than I got, which was just to check back.

I thought the tickets had to go through the Debate Commission. That's great if people can just get them from the web page.

edit==

I like this Reagan quote on the web page:


“In the days ahead we need to systematically redevelop our approach to this problem, recognizing that the worse outcome of all is one in which terrorists succeed in transforming an open democracy into a closed fortress. "

There is still nothing there about the debates except the press release announcing them, though.

Interesting...apparently the GOP is considering sanctioning the debates themselves and selling broadcast rights.... http://www.nypost.com/p/entertainment/tv/rnc_may_sell_debates_EN0bOUCb0zuzzPXuocrV2K

Um, I'm seeing a bunch of froth, nothing definitive, suggesting the debate may be cancelled and rescheduled. However, that will become apparent if it happens, I suppose.

That's what the NYTimes is saying and others may have spun off that. Palin apparently scheduled an event the same day, then when the event cancelled immediately scheduled another one the same day....

One line in the NYTimes article indicates it might be because it is NBC moderating and people are worried about a Maddow type moderator. Although, they later list who the moderators would be and they don't sound so bad.

At this rate they'll have two unknown candidates on the stage. A ratings blockbuster.

How can they hold a debate when there are so few declared candidates?Is Michelle Bachmann just going to debate Tim Pawlenty? Why have there been so few announcements compared to 2 008?Is there some special advantage a late announcement gives to a candidate this time?

Did Bachmann officially announce?

Bachman announced that she expects to announce an exploratory committee in June but that if waiting so long would keep her out of the debates, she could move it up.

They changed primary rules to push them back, and people don't want to be the first one the press have sharpened their claws on, and put the cash register for the campaign into overdrive earlier than necessary.

Well, it looks like you guys were right:
"GOP 2012 debate moved to Sept.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation has postponed its debate for Republican candidates from May 2 to September 14."
