GOP presidential debate moved to Hampton

By Staff reports
November 03, 2011 2:46 PMHAMPTON — The Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC announced Thursday it is moving a forum for Republican presidential candidates to Hampton.

The event is slated to be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10 at the One Liberty Lane Office and Conference Center. Previous plans to hold the event in Exeter and Manchester were changed.

Candidates who have committed to participate include Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Gary Johnson and Buddy Roemer, according to organizers.

“Our members were disgusted with the debates being broadcast by the major networks,” said Jerry DeLemus, chairman of the Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC, “and so we set out to design a forum that would provide the viewer with a true look at the candidates.”

The limited seating in the house will be by invitation, and only those holding tickets will be admitted. However, the event can be viewed at www.granitegrok.com and heard live on WGIR-AM 610.

Paul Wescott of WGIR will serve as moderator, speaking with the candidates in groups of two for in-depth conversation on issues with an emphasis on how they pertain to the U.S. Constitution, the group said.

An audience of approximately 200 will be in the house to view the debate and to participate via electronic feedback, organizers said.

DeLemus said, “Our intention is to provide a meaningful dialogue that is civil and dignified, allowing each candidate to display his or her most positive attributes.”

Is it really worth it? Seems to be a Gingrich + third tier event. It's not being televised and only 200 in tHe audience.

But this is his wheelhouse plus there are those who will think those who care about the Constitution will be there. Having said that, there are only so many hours in a day. I'd rather he did this one and dumped OReilly, though.

But part of that is just because I like the idea of dumping ORielly.

I think he needs to do this. It is a "new" venue and not speaking to the choir... almost like a "townhall". He always does better in this more relaxed atmosphere, where he is able to get his issues across instead of 60 second responses. As far a B. O'reilly, is he really doing B.O? Big mistake if so.
