NH Republicans and UNH Partner on Sept. 5 Presidential Debate

July 25, 2007

Event to be Televised Live on FOX News From the Whittemore Center at UNH

The New Hampshire Republican Party announced today that it will partner with UNH to present its 2008 presidential debate, which is expected to attract the top Republican contenders for President. The 90-minute debate will be presented live on FOX News Channel (FNC) and FOX News Radio beginning at 9 p.m. ET from Whittemore Center on September 5, 2007.

Joining FNC and FOX News Radio in presenting the live event will be local radio stations WTSL-AM in Springfield, WGIR-AM in Manchester, WGIN-AM in Portsmouth and WGIP-AM in Exeter, NH.

Fergus Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party said, “This will be the first major debate after the Iowa straw poll and comes some four months before our presidential primary in early January 2008. It is being held at exactly the time campaigns expect the universe of voters paying close attention to the campaign to expand beyond the activists to include large numbers of other New Hampshire voters.”

President Mark Huddleston added, "As the flagship public university in the first-in-the-nation primary state, the University of New Hampshire is honored to host this national presidential primary debate on its campus. The New Hampshire Presidential Primary is a Granite State tradition and we are committed to providing opportunities like this for our students, faculty, staff and members of the community to participate in the political process.”
