ABC’s Jonathan Karl to Moderate Panel of GOP Hopefuls

By Brian Flood 

ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl will moderate a discussion between GOP presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio on from Iowa tonight at 11:30 pm. The discussion will be streamed live on and Karl will report for various ABC News programs and platforms.

The hour-long panel, sponsored by the Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, is this year’s first public forum of potential presidential candidates. Many conservative leaders are in Iowa for the Iowa Freedom Summit. The “American Recovery Policy Forum” is also the first event of its kind for the Freedom Partners.

“Our members care deeply about the future of our nation and we’re honored to host some of today’s most influential and respected leaders in shaping public policy,” Freedom Partners spokesman James Davis said. “We hope that this panel will give each participant the opportunity to lay out their vision for a more free and prosperous society.”
