GOP Economic Debate Held Today

CNBC/MSNBC/The Wall Street Journal will co-sponsor a Republican presidential debate today in Dearborn, Michigan. The debate will air on CNBC at 4pm EST and again on MSNBC at 9pm EST. This is the first debate of the election season that will focus purely on economic issues.

Additionally, voters for the first time will hear from former Senator Fred Thompson in his first official debate appearance as a presidential candidate. In national polls, Thompson has been running in 2nd and 3rd place. This debate is important for him as it will allow many voters to hear from him for the first time. The other candidates that will participate are Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo, Sam Brownback and Duncan Hunter.
