Former Arkansas governor and current Fox News Channel host Mike Huckabee will be hosting a GOP primary debate of his own December 3. Rather than being a proper “debate,” FNC is calling it a “forum,” and rightly so. The New York Times has the letter FNC sent to the candidates, and it assures them that “At no point will candidates have on-air interaction with each other,” and that there will be no studio audience.
So far Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul and former FNC contributors Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have agreed to attend. Invitations are out to the other candidates.
