A change of heart from the leading GOP candidates – they’ve now agreed to participate in a debate to air on Univision network on December 9. Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney will join John McCain and lesser-known candidates Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter.
Almost all Republican presidential candidates initially ignored Univision’s invitation to a September 16 debate, forcing the network to postpone it indefinitely. Only John McCain and Duncan Hunter had agreed to talk about the issues in front of Spanish-language viewers.
The event is set to take place at the University of Miami. Questions will be asked in Spanish and translated into English, just like in the Democratic debate.
Only two candidates are not confirmed: Mike Huckabee and Tom Tancredo.
