This is a late update on this debate mainly due to C-SPAN’s late decision to air the event later this evening. The debate will take place Monday at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire. The event takes place at 4pm ET but will not be broadcast on C-SPAN until 10:27pm ET when it can be streamed online or viewed on television. The focus will primarily delve into national security and foreign policy.

Air Time: Monday, December 12 at 10:27pm ET on C-SPAN

Live Stream: C-SPAN (At 10:27pm ET)

Participants: Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman

Report from Deseret News:

A little-known former Congressman named Abraham Lincoln ran against incumbent Sen. Stephen Douglas in 1858, and the two men subsequently engaged in a series of seven epic debates across their home state of Illinois. Although Lincoln would lose that senate race to Douglas, the notoriety of the Lincoln-Douglas debates catalyzed Honest Abe’s successful bid for president in 1860.

Jon Huntsman Jr. and GOP frontrunner Newt Gingrich will stage a one-on-one, Lincoln-Douglas debate Monday in New Hampshire — and by hearkening back to yesteryear both men seek to break Mitt Romney ‘s stranglehold on Republican support in the Granite State.

Huntsman’s campaign website indicates the debate will be “on foreign policy and national security.” It will begin at 4 p.m. ET and can be steamed online at or viewed on television when C-SPAN rebroadcasts the event at 10:27 p.m. ET.

If you do miss this event, have no fear, we’ll link to the C-SPAN replay. It is not being broadcast live anyway so we’ll all be watching the taped event. Once again, sorry for the delayed notification. This event was brought together only in the last week and a half and C-SPAN only decided in recent days to air the event.


There has been a huge discrepancy in the times reported from C-SPAN. Originally scheduled for 8pm ET airing on C-SPAN, it seems that is not the case. According to C-SPAN, it will now air at 9:42pm ET and then re-air again on December 13th at 1:04am ET.

I apologize to anyone counting on a certain time that was reported here. C-SPAN was not providing accurate information earlier today.
