Wolf Blitzer to Moderate CNN’s Republican Debate in Houston

By Mark Joyella 

CNN has announced that Wolf Blitzer will moderate the network’s Feb. 25 Republican presidential debate in Houston. Blitzer will be joined by CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash, Telemundo anchor Maria Celeste Arraras, and conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.

Telemundo will carry the debate live in Spanish.

The debate, originally scheduled to be hosted by NBC, was given to CNN in January after the Republican National Committee said it had “decided to move forward without NBC’s participation.” The decision to pull the debate from NBC followed objections raised by the RNC after the heavily criticized CNBC debate in October.
