First GOP Presidential debate hosted by SCGOP & Fox News! Taking place on the evening of May 5 in Greenville, South Carolina. I am going to this debate.
Expected to participate in Greenville, in alphabetical order, are:
- Herman Cain, CEO of Godfather’s Pizza
- Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House
- Ron Paul, U.S. Representative from Texas
- Tim Pawlenty, former governor of Minnesota
- Buddy Roemer, former governor of Louisiana
- Rick Santorum, former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania
Additional participants may announce at a later time.
To be eligible for participation in the debate, candidates must register a presidential exploratory committee or presidential campaign with the Federal Elections Commission, file paperwork to be placed on the ballot in South Carolina, pay associated state and federal filing fees, and meet national polling criteria consistent with what was used in the 2007 Fox-SCGOP debate. Please note that all listed candidates have not formed an exploratory committee at this time.
