The Arizona Republican Presidential Debate, scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011, will move to Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012, CNN announced.
Arizona will hold its primary on Feb. 28, 2012 and CNN decided it would be more appropriate to hold this important debate in the critical state of Arizona closer to the primary election. CNN’s partner in the debate, the Arizona Republican Party, and Gov. Jan. Brewer, a driving force in making this debate happen, agreed to CNN’s request to change the date.
The debate will be held at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona and air in primetime on CNN, CNN en Español and globally on CNN International and CNN Radio.
