MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Republicans eyeing their party's
presidential nomination in 2012 are preparing for the first debate
to include former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Romney and six of his rivals are scheduled to meet Monday night
at St. Anselm's College in Manchester. It will be the first time
Romney will share a stage with the contenders who are looking to
take away his frontrunner status.
Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, businessman Herman Cain of
Georgia and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia are set
to participate in the debate. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, former
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Sen. Rick Santorum of
Pennsylvania will also be on hand.
Romney skipped the campaign's first debate.
