Fox News Republican Orlando debate this Sunday, Oct. 21

ORLANDO. The Republicans will debate this Sunday on Fox News Channel 8pm ET. This event has been so poorly publicized that I thought we ought to get a post up. Go Mitt!

By the way, here are the remaining debates for the year (did you notice that Iowa's January 5th debate comes AFTER the primary - Jan. 3?):

October 21, 2007 - Orlando, Florida
October 25, 2007 - Sioux City, Iowa
November 6, 2007 - Cedar Falls, Iowa
November 28, 2007 - St. Petersburg, Florida
January 5, 2008 - Johnston, Iowa
January 10, 2008 - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
January 30, 2008 - Los Angeles, California

I think that based on these dates, December would be an ideal time for Romney to give his "Mormon speech" because there will be a vacuum of election coverage...and the press could be hungry for just such a story. Also, New Hampshire may move their primary into December. There are those who question whether Romney will give the speech at all. But if he does, I think he should do it in December, or just after his win in Iowa.
