Live Chat: Florida/NBC Presidential Debate

The presidential candidates take the stage again tonight, for the third debate in eight days. This one takes place in Tampa, Florida. TheIowaRepublican.com invites you to participate in our live, interactive chat.

Newt Gingrich owns all the momentum in the race, thanks primarily to his two performances in last week’s debates. The Florida polls have already shifted dramatically from a huge Romney lead to a Gingrich advantage. Will the moderators finally learn that every time they challenge Gingrich, they help him?’

NBC affiliates nationwide will air the debate. The decision was not made until Saturday, so your local program listings might now show the debate on the schedule.

Join TIR tonight for instant analysis, Twitter feeds from the candidates, insight from experts, and more. We invite your comments and questions tonight during our Live Chat. The debate airs at 8 pm, central time tonight. TheIowaRepublican.com’s live chat begins at 7:45. We hope to see you here tonight!
