Lots at stake in first-of-its-kind tea party presidential debate

Tampa, Florida (CNN) – A battle over Social Security between the top two contenders in the race for the GOP nomination that started at last week's presidential debate doesn't show any signs of quieting down, and a first ever CNN/Tea Party Republican debate Monday night in Florida could serve as the setting for round two in the clash.

And the debate, being held at the Florida State Fairgrounds, will give the six other candidates on the stage an opportunity to change the dynamics of what many are currently portraying as a two-person race between Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

On Monday, Sept. 12th, CNN will broadcast the "Tea Party Republican Debate," live from Tampa, Florida at 8 p.m. ET. Follow all the issues and campaign news leading up to the debate on CNNPolitics.com and @cnnpolitics on Twitter

Nation looks ahead with hope after remembering 9/11 victims

New York (CNN) - President Barack Obama on Sunday evening helped conclude remembrances of Americans who died in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with a message of unity and resolve for the years ahead.

"These past 10 years underscore the bonds between all Americans. We have not succumbed to suspicion and mistrust," Obama said at the "Concert for Hope" at the Kennedy Center in Washington. "It will be said of us that we kept that faith; that we took a painful blow, and emerged stronger."
