Report from CNBC:
CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, today announced that CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo and CNBC’s Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood will moderate “Your Money, Your Vote: The Republican Presidential Debate” on Wednesday, November 9th. Hosted by CNBC, the Michigan Republican Party and Oakland University, the debate will be held at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan and broadcast live on CNBC beginning 8PM ET.
With almost one year to the day before the general election, this debate will be devoted to exploring the candidates’ positions on the critical issues facing voters—jobs, taxes, the deficit and the health of our national economy. Bartiromo and Harwood will be joined by CNBC’s Jim Cramer, host of “Mad Money w/Jim Cramer,” and a panel of CNBC experts including CNBC’s Senior Economics Reporter Steve Liesman, CNBC’s On-Air Editor Rick Santelli and CNBC’s Senior Commodities & Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson, who will also question the candidates about the major policy issues.
“The economy is the key issue in the upcoming election, and as the leader in business news, CNBC has the responsibility to ask the hard-hitting questions and draw out the critical differences in the candidates’ plans for economic recovery,” said Mark Hoffman, CEO & President, CNBC. “With Maria and John leading this debate along with our high-caliber panel of experts, CNBC will deliver a substantive and stimulating dialogue that challenges the candidates and provides the answers voters deserve.”
No details yet on who will be invited to participate but you can assume at least the seven candidates which participated in the prior CNN Western Republican Debate will attend.
