WASHINGTON (CNN) - White House hopeful John McCain will participate in the upcoming CNN/YouTube GOP presidential debate in St. Petersburg, Florida, the Arizona Republican announced Friday
"I look forward to returning to Florida and communicating with voters nationwide in the CNN/YouTube presidential debate,” McCain said. “I commend both CNN and YouTube for hosting this historic debate that will increase participation by opening up the political conversation to interested voters across the country via user-generated video.”
