Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Two men who would like to unseat long-time New Hampshire front-runner Mitt Romney will sit down for a one-on-one debate in the state later this month.
Jon Huntsman and Newt Gingrich have agreed to a Lincoln-Douglas style match-up, with both participants going head-to-head on a range of issues.
The event is designed to give undecided voters a close look at candidates who are not Mitt Romney - a known quantity in New Hampshire who has deep ties to the state and has made winning here a priority.
The debate is tentatively scheduled for Dec. 12.
Gingrich previously debated Herman Cain in a similar event. Gingrich has repeatedly stated that if he becomes the Republican nominee he would challenge President Obama to a series of similarly structured debates.
