Along with announcing their New Hampshire debate, CNN is also announcing they have teamed with the Tea Party Express to broadcast a Republican Primary Debate from Tampa Florida the first week of September, 2011.


Air Date: September 12th, 2011

Report from the LA Times:

WASHINGTON– CNN plans to host a Republican presidential primary debate next year with Tea Party Express, a political action committee that featured Sarah Palin at its events and is now raising money for a new advertising campaign against President Obama.

The cable news network announced Friday that it has teamed up with the Sacramento-based organization to co-host a debate in Tampa, the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention, during the first week of September. The event will focus on the economy and the size and scope of government.

Once again, the schedule if debates is filling up fast, probably much to the chagrin of the 2012 Republican contenders.
