Press release via FITSNews:

Congressman Tim Scott (R-SC) will join Governor Mike Huckabee for “Huckabee Forum 2: South Carolina Undecided”, featuring GOP Presidential candidates on January 14 at 12 pm at Sottile Theatre, 44 George Street at the College of Charleston. The Forum, which will air on Governor Huckabee’s Fox News Show, will allow undecided voters the opportunity to ask questions of each of the Presidential candidates. Voters can submit their questions by emailing [email protected]

“It is decision time in South Carolina,” said Congressman Scott. “Voters are making their final judgments and will coalesce behind a conservative candidate who will defeat President Obama in November. This Forum will be a tremendous help in making that decision.”

The Forum will begin at 12:00 pm. Doors will open at 10:30 am, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Our country is ready for a new beginning,” said Congressman Scott. “This Forum gives South Carolina voters the opportunity to actively participate in that process, and make sure we get it right – as we have done in every Presidential election since choosing Ronald Reagan in 1980.”

The first Huckabee forum featured 1-on-1 interviews with each candidate being questioned by 3 state Attorneys General and the response was quite positive. The candidates were forced to elaborate their answers and were not given the the opportunity to duck many questions.
