Free & Equal | Press Release
- Free & Equal Elections Foundation announced their hosting of the 2012 Presidential Debate today. The debate will be held at 8:00pm CST at University Club of Chicago
in Chicago on Tuesday, October 23rd. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson
, Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode
and Green Party candidate Jill Stein
have confirmed their participation. Incumbent and Democratic Party candidate Barack Obama
and Republican Party candidate Mitt Romney
have been invited to participate in this important debate.
Free & Equal Elections Foundation gained national attention in 2008, when it hosted the only Presidential debate in the country in which every candidate whom had ballot access in enough states to become President was invited
. Both Ralph Nader and Chuck Baldwin participated in 2008, and Free & Equal is seeking to increase that number for the 2012 election. The debate made history, being the first and only all-inclusive, nationally televised debate on C-SPAN2.
To have received an invitation to the Presidential debate on October 23rd, a candidate must meet one of two requirements. Either they must be on the ballot in enough states to be viably electable, or they must receive 1% or greater in a national poll.
Free & Equal will announce the debate moderator and live web feed access prior to the debate.
The Free & Equal debate will feature a large group of sponsors including the Josh Tolley Radio Show
, Restore the Republic
, Ballot Access News
, Re-Tea Party
, Free the Vote NC
, We The People
, and Blue Republicans
. Additional sponsors will be announced soon.
