They say it will be televised on ETV on the South Carolina Channel. If I go I'll bring a camcorder.

Will Ron be there?

This doesn't sound like a debate

It's a forum, not a debate:


The Palmetto Freedom Forum will follow a unique format, designed to allow invited candidates to engage in a thoughtful, substantive discussion of their stances on the critical issues facing our country. Candidates will be featured on stage one-at-a-time and will engage in a question and answer session with three panelists: U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), U.S. Representative Steve King (R-IA), and Dr. Robert P. George, founder of the American Principles Project and a professor at Princeton University. The event will be moderated by David Stanton, a veteran of South Carolina presidential events and former local news anchor.

They will formally invite candidates on August 22:


The Palmetto Freedom Forum Advisory Committee will invite those individuals to participate who have achieved a 5% threshold in the realclearpolitics.com 2012 Republican Presidential Nomination RCP Average as is posted on that site on August 22, 2011 at 1PM Eastern Daylight Time. Those individuals who meet that criteria will receive a formal invitation.

The candidates will not turn down an invitation from Jim DeMint. They're all looking for his endorsement.

The forum will be broadcast on CNN and streamed live on townhall.com.

Cain just barely made it..Indeed. The CNN poll that came out just after the invites went out on the 22nd had Cain at 2% dropping his average to 4.7%

Although with the forum setup instead of debate, that either extends the total forum time or decreases the minutes per candidate.
