On Monday, June 13, 2011 there will be the second televised GOP presidential debate of the season starting at 8pm Eastern. The event will be held at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire. Along with Herman Cain, Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, who attended the previous debate in South Carolina, they will be joined by Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. The debate is sponsored by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper, as well as by WMUR-TV and CNN, both of whom will carry the debate live. Naturally, RightPundits will provide a live feed, as well as conduct a live blog for those of you whom wish to comment during the action. The live blog will start at 7:30pm Eastern, if not earlier, and will continue through the course of the debate and perhaps well beyond it.

Historic and beautiful Saint Anselm Alumni Hall in Manchester, New Hampshire will be the site of the GOP presidential debate on Monday, June 13, 2011 at 8pm Eastern.

No word on why Gary Johnson will be absent, given that he did appear last month in the South Carolina debate. Also, it has yet to be established if any of the others, like Jon Huntsman, Jr. or even Rudy Giuliani may be added late to the event. There will be two additional debates later this summer, one in July from Nevada and one in August from Iowa. September will have three debates, followed by two more in October, one in December, two in January and February and one in March. By then, we ought to have a good idea who the Republican presidential nominee will be.

The GOP presidential debate this coming Monday from Manchester, New Hampshire should be a good one, with the main topic focusing on the economy. The news of the past few weeks has been all bad, causing Barack Obama′s approval numbers to nose dive. RightPundits is the place to be for live feeds and live blogs of all of the GOP presidential debates. Be sure and bookmark us and we will see you Monday night for another round of political fun.
