Iowa GOP, ABC News Team Up For Dec. Debate

The Iowa Republican Party will join with ABC News to co-sponsor a live presidential debate from Des Moines the weekend of December 10, state party chairman Matt Strawn announced Thursday.

Strawn said this debate will be the third, and final, presidential debate co-sponsored by the Iowa GOP.

The debate will be moderated by Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos and will be broadcast live on ABC both in the state and nationally.

The Iowa Republican Party and Fox News have already committed to holding debates on August 11, in Ames -- two days before the Iowa Republican straw poll in Ames -- and in Sioux City the week before the 2012 caucuses, which are currently slated for Feb. 6, 2012.
