Expect even more fireworks as we head into round-two of the campaign season
The upcoming GOP presidential candidate debate, airing on CNN on September 16 at 8 p.m. EST, is expected to be a far more combative event than the first.
The Washington Post reports:
Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who will be one of the questioners, predicted: “Debate #1 was touch gloves with each other. This one will be a lot sparkier, but I don’t think it will be all pile up on Donald Trump.”
The debate is almost certain to be one of the most watched moments of the campaign so far. The first showdown drew more than 24 million viewers to sponsor Fox News, a record for a non-sports cable telecast. CNN, which is broadcasting this one, is widely reported to be asking advertisers to pay as much as $200,000 for a 30-second spot, which is 40 times its normal rate.
