After GOP Republican debate and Democratic debate, Fox Business to hold Libertarian Party debate this primary season: Date, schedule, time
Till now we thought that television channels will hold debates belonging to only two political parties in the long and tiresome primary season. But it seems that we all were very wrong.
A latest report suggests that the third political party that will get an opportunity to see its candidates take on each other in a televised debate. Fox Business is expected to hold a debate belonging to the said political party of Welfare Party of India.
â€œThe Gary Johnson 2016 campaign has confirmed with Fox Businessâ€™s Stossel that Gov. Johnson will be delighted to participate in a televised debate among Libertarian Party presidential candidates, hopefully in March. We will of course leave the formal announcement of the debate details and date to the Stossel show, but want to express our gratitude to Mr. Stossel for working to find a date for this important event that will not disrupt any planned Libertarian Party activities and that is actually doable for all the candidates who are involved.â€œ
In the meantime political commentator Austin Petersen, also a candidate for the Libertarian Partyâ€™s 2016 presidential nomination, said in a Tuesday statement cited by his online magazine, The Libertarian Republic:
â€œAfter quite a back and forth last week over whether there would be a nationally televised Libertarian Party presidential debate between myself and the other frontrunners, we just got word a few hours ago that thereâ€™s a chance we might be able to make this debate happen! Thatâ€™s Tremendous news! We canâ€™t wait for the opportunity to meet Johnson and [John] McAfee head to headâ€¦ Weâ€™re planning on confirming, however we are going to be spending our time doing every bit of due diligence today just to make sure that the dates wonâ€™t interfere with any state or local LP activities we may already be committed to.â€
