Candidate Lineup Announced For GOP Presidential Debate Set For Simi Valley

Posted on Thursday, August 25, 2011 6:42pm

The lineup has been set for a Republican Party presidential debate set to take place in Ventura County next month.

Eight candidates have agreed to take part in the September 7th event at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, in Simi Valley.

The lineup includes Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Governor John Huntzman, Texas Congressman Ron Paul, Texas Governor Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, and businessman Herman Cain.

The debate was originally supposed to take place last spring, but was postponed because not enough GOP candidates had declared their intent to run.

The September 7th is the first of two planned for the Presidential library before the 2012 election.

It’s co-sponsored by NBC News, and Politico,com, with NBC News anchor Brian Williams expected to be the debate’s moderator.
