From the press release:
Chairman Sue P. Everhart is pleased to announce that the Georgia Republican Party will be partnering with CNN to host the 2012 Super Tuesday Republican Presidential Debate. Taking place in Metro Atlanta, Georgia within days prior to the March 6th Primary, each of the ten candidates to appear on Georgia’s Republican Presidential Preference Primary ballot will be invited to share the stage.
In the coming days, additional details will be released as they are finalized.
“I am excited that the Georgia Republican Party will be partnering with CNN to host a Presidential debate here in Georgia before the March 6th Presidential Preference Primary,” remarked Secretary of State Brian Kemp. “When I set the Primary date last month, I chose March 6th because I felt Georgia would be very relevant on this date, and we will be.”
“Hosting the 2012 Super Tuesday Republican Presidential Debate will ensure that the national spotlight shines on Georgia, one of the reddest states in our great nation,” continued Chairman Everhart. “With 76 Delegates to the Republican National Convention and millions of principled, conservative voters, the State of Georgia is rightfully a can’t-miss stop for each and every Republican candidate vying for our Party’s nomination.
“The road to the White House in 2012 runs straight through Georgia, and I look forward to welcoming the Republican Presidential Candidates to the Peach State for our Super Tuesday Presidential Debate.”
