Romney announces fall debate schedule

(CNN) – Fresh off the CNN/WMUR/New Hampshire Union Leader presidential primary debate last week, GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney announced Tuesday that he will attend two more CNN-sponsored debates this fall.

Romney will participate in a first-of-its-kind presidential primary debate co-sponsored by CNN and the Tea Party Express in Tampa, Florida – site of the 2012 Republican National Convention – on September 12.

The former Massachusetts governor will also travel to Las Vegas for the Western Republican Leadership Conference, where CNN was selected to host a debate for GOP presidential candidates on October 18.

During the four-day conference, 16 states and territories that make up the Republican National Committee Western Region will meet to talk politics and policy and hear from presidential candidates.

Romney will also attend four other debates this fall, including a debate co-sponsored by Fox News, The Washington Examiner and the Republican Party of Iowa on August 11, an NBC/POLITICO debate in Simi Valley, California on September 7, a September 22 debate sponsored by Fox News and the Republican Party of Florida, and a Washington Post/Bloomberg debate in Hanover, New Hampshire on October 11.

    well since Mitt has admitted that he is one of the 14 million unemployed in our country he has plenty of spare time on his hands to plan all these events I'm sure.

    The first so called debate was more like an office party where you promoted the esteem of your fellow co workers so hopefully the next one will actually be a debate where there is some real questions about real issues. I think they better drop the I hate Obama theme and talk about policy and solutions and why they are better then their opponent.

    The killer question at the Republican Debate is:

    Do you endorse or reject "trickle down" economics?

    Any GOP member that spouts that "tax cuts for 'job creators' bolsters the economy" crap IS NOT worthy of being POTUS.

    Gee I hope the next debates are actually a debate instead of just beating up on Obama. I would like to finally hear what the Republicans/Tea Party are going to about creating some jobs. What is your plans?
