CNN Hosts GOP Debate on National Security from Washington, DC

CNN lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer will moderate a Republican presidential debate on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (ET) live from the historic DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. The debate, in partnership with The Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), will focus on three of the most critical issues candidates will encounter during the Republican presidential nomination: national security, foreign policy and the economy. The debate falls on the eve of the deadline for the so-called congressional super committee to create a plan for at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction.

In addition to Blitzer, Foreign policy experts from AEI and The Heritage Foundation will pose questions to the candidates. The following eight presidential contenders will participate in the debate: Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

Live coverage from DAR Constitution Hall will begin the day before the debate, on Monday, Nov. 21, and continue through the post-debate programming on the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 22 to include anchors Wolf Blitzer, John King and Erin Burnett. CNN political analysts and contributors Paul Begala, Gloria Borger, Donna Brazile, David Frum, David Gergen, Ari Fleischer, and Dana Loesch will participate in coverage from the nation’s capital.

CNN en Español’s Washington, D.C. anchor Juan Carlos López will host live analysis on that network before the debate starting at 7:45 p.m. (ET). At 8 p.m., CNN en Español will take the debate live with simultaneous interpretation followed by more analysis with CNN en Español’s team of political contributors. The debate will also be carried live on CNN International.

Heritage to Co-Host Debate with AEI, CNN

Washington, D.C., Oct. 17, 2011 – The Heritage Foundation will co-host a Republican presidential debate on foreign policy and national security with the American Enterprise Institute and CNN, officials of the two Washington-based think tanks and the worldwide cable news organization announced late tonight.

The Republican candidates’ debate, scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m. at a Washington location to be announced shortly, will air nationally on CNN and CNN en Español and worldwide on CNN International, CNN Radio and CNN.com.

 “Heritage is delighted to have this opportunity to increase public understanding of the candidates’ positions on critical foreign policy and national security questions requiring American leadership in the second decade of the 21st century,” Heritage President Edwin J. Feulner said.

The debate will mark the first time that either Heritage or AEI has sponsored a presidential debate. Details such as format will be announced later, said spokesmen for CNN and the two nonprofit, nonpartisan research institutes.

 The Heritage Foundation is the nation’s most broadly supported public policy research institute, with more than 710,000 individual, foundation and corporate donors. Founded in 1973, it develops public policy solutions that advance free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional values and a strong national defense.

The American Enterprise Institute focuses on policies to expand liberty, increase individual opportunity and strengthen free enterprise. Founded in 1943, AEI is dedicated to research and education on issues of government, politics, economics and social welfare.

CNN Worldwide, a division of Turner Broadcasting System Inc., a Time Warner Company, includes nine cable and satellite television networks; two radio networks; CNN Digital Network, the No. 1  network of news websites in the U.S.; and CNN Newsource, the world’s most extensively syndicated news service.

Republican Presidential Debate – Foreign and Defense Policy – AEI

The American Enterprise Institute, in partnership with CNN and The Heritage Foundation, is pleased to announce that the Republican presidential debate on national security and foreign policy will take place on Tuesday, November 22, at 8 p.m. ET.

The president of the United States and commander in chief holds an awesome power over the blood and treasure of the American people. But those vying to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012 have revealed little about their views on national security in GOP presidential debates thus far. The nation is consumed with economic problems, yet a national security crisis can shift our priorities in a single moment.

It’s time to find out how the men and women who would be president will perform when that crisis hits.

The national security debate, a landmark first for AEI and Heritage, will air nationally on CNN and CNN en Español and worldwide on CNN International, CNN Radio and CNN.com.
