The leading Republican presidential candidates will debate on CNN tonight with some questions coming from Americans on YouTube. About 40 of more than 3,500 video submissions are expected to be played at the debate. The snowman who asked the Democrats about global warming will be back. Others submitting questions included the parents of a slain gay man and actor Kirk Douglas, who poses a question about education.
With the Iowa Caucus fast approaching, all the candidates are expected to attend tonight’s debate in St. Petersburg, Florida, even though some have expressed reservations about the format. Polls show the race in Iowa is a dead heat between Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, while former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani Is leading nationally.
