The debates will be presented live on FOX News Channel (FNC) and FOX News Radio.

The first of the two debates will be held on September 6, 2007 at a location to be determined.  The second debate will take place prior to the New Hampshire primary, which is tentatively scheduled for January 22, 2008 and will be a forum for the candidates to make their platforms known.

In making this announcement, FOX News Executive Producer of Political Programs Marty Ryan said, “We look forward to presenting these debates from the ‘first in the nation primary state’. Fox News is proud to commit air time, production and technical resources to the 2008 presidential election.”

Wayne Semprini, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee added, “I am absolutely thrilled that FOX News has recognized the important role that New Hampshire plays in the selection process by planning two debates this far in advance.  I also think the timing of their debates is opportune and this confirms New Hampshire’s role as well as confirming Fox’s dedication to help better educate the New Hampshire voters.”
