By Alex Weprin Comment

The road to 2012 continues, with yet another Republican Presidential primary debate added to the schedule. This one is being co-sponsored by ABC News and WOI-DT and will be held in Iowa the weekend of December 10.

“ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer and “Good Morning America” co-anchor George Stephanopoulos will moderate the debate.

The debate is timed just a few weeks before the Iowa Caucus, which is always one of the first primary events in the 2012 campaign.

ABC previously announced that it would co-host a debate to be held in New Hampshire in between the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary.
