It’s been on the debate agenda a couple months, however, we’re finally getting details from the organizations involved in the Republican debate being held in Las Vegas on July 10th, 2011 as part of the 2011 Conservative Leadership Conference. The debate is sponsored by The Daily Caller, Americans for Tax Reform and the Citizens Outreach Foundation.

Tickets to this debate can be purchased as part of attended to the Conservative Leadership Conference, please visit the CLC website for details.

At this point we don’t know which candidates will attend, however, apparently all have been invited, including Gary Johnson and yet-to-declare Jon Huntsman. Information on the television broadcast such as time and channel are not yet available though press releases have stated the debate will be nationally televised.

Chuck Muth, President of Citizen Outreach, released some details via his blog:

The conference will conclude with a bang on Sunday night with a nationally televised debate between the Republican presidential candidates. The debate will be moderated by Tucker Carlson of The Daily Caller and Grover Norquist. Over 200 bloggers, reporters and columnists are expected to attend and cover the debate.

All of the leading GOP candidates have been invited – including recently announced candidate Jon Huntsman who was not yet a candidate for the recent New Hampshire debate, and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson who was not invited to the New Hampshire debate. Most, if not all, are expected to participate.

It appears that all of the prospective candidates are expected to attend which could potentially include Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. Keep in mind not every candidates has confirmed attendance, however, this is the invite list which could make for a crowded stage.

I have inquired to get some more details such as broadcast information I will keep you updated with anymore details.
