WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Foundation announced Monday that it has joined with CNN, the Los Angeles Times and Politico.com to host the final GOP presidential debate before the February 5, 2008 "Super-Tuesday" elections when California, Florida and as many as 20 other states hold primaries.
Nancy Reagan has extended invitations to the GOP frontrunners seeking their party's presidential nomination to participate in this final debate, which will take place at the Reagan Library on January 30, 2008. More specific details about this historic event will be announced at a later date.
"We are very pleased to be a host of the final Republican presidential debate before Super Tuesday," said Jon Klein, president of CNN/U.S. "Given the timing, this debate should play an important role in the outcome of the presidential election and it is extremely fitting that it will be held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library."
"The Reagan Presidential Library is delighted to be able to host this important debate on the eve of these crucial primary votes," said Frederick J. Ryan, Jr., chairman of the board of trustees of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Foundation. "It was President Reagan's dream that his Library play a meaningful role in our democratic process and this event will be another milestone toward fulfilling that goal."
