The second installment of the Iowa GOP/Fox News debate series will be held in Sioux City the week before the 2012 Iowa Caucuses, state Republican Chair Matt Strawn announced Tuesday.
The debate will be held at the Orpheum Theater. Strawn said specifics regarding the debate will be released at a later date. The 2012 Iowa Caucuses will be held on Feb. 6, 2012.
The Iowa Republican Party and Fox News previously announced the date of the first debate in the series, which is set to take place on August 11, 2011, around the same time as the Iowa Republican straw poll in Ames.
Meanwhile, the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition is hosting a forum on March 7, and several potential 2012 presidential candidates have committed to attending.
