The Western Republican Leadership Conference has selected CNN to host a GOP presidential primary debate in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 18, the network announced Wednesday.
The debate will coincide with the WRLC's four-day conference in Las Vegas the week of October 17.
CNN is co-hosting two other debates in 2011. One will be on June 7 in Manchester, New Hampshire and the other will be on September 12 in Tampa, Florida.
A slow start to the primary campaign has already pushed an NBC News/Politico debate that was originally scheduled for early May back to September, so a series of four debates are now slated to take place over the six-week period from August 11 - September 22.
A May 5 debate in Greenville, South Carolina being sponsored Fox News and the South Carolina Republican Party is still scheduled to take place, despite the slow start to the campaign.
