Fox News, Google team for debate

Bret Baier to host Sept. 22 event in Florida

As competition for the GOP presidential nomination heats up, Fox News is giving candidates another opportunity to square off on issues ranging from health care to foreign policy. The network said Thursday that it had pacted with Google to host a debate in Orlando, Fla., on Sept. 22. It will run 9-11 p.m. ET.

Bret Baier will moderate the debate between contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, with FNC flagship anchors Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace acting as panelists. Program will include questions for the candidates submitted through the news cabler’s YouTube channel (either in video or text form) and voted on by YouTube users.

The site was already awash in prospective questions on Thursday, including pointed queries about states’ rights, constitutionality and reducing dependence on foreign oil.

Debate will be presented live from the Orange County Convention Center on Fox News and livestreamed through the YouTube channel, YouTube.com/FoxNews and via other FNC properties.
