Pollster Frank Luntz will moderate a Republican presidential forum scheduled for Nov. 19 in Des Moines, Iowa. The event is sponsored by The Family Leader, a conservative group headquartered in nearby Pleasant Hill.
The candidates who have confirmed they will attend include Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum, the Family Leader said in a statement.
"I promise this won't be like anything you've ever seen," Luntz said in the statement. "No gotcha questions by the panel. No spin by the politicians. Just an authentic discussion among the people who seek to lead this great nation."
