ABC NEWS ANNOUNCES DATE FOR PRIMETIME IOWA REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE CO-SPONSORED BY ABC5/WOI-DT AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF IOWA

Debate to Air Saturday, December 10 in Primetime from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT Nationally on the ABC Television Network and Locally on ABC5/WOI-DT

Excerpted Debate to Re-Air the Following Morning on "This Week with Christiane Amanpour"

Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos to Moderate from Des Moines, Iowa

ABC News' Republican presidential candidate debate in Iowa with ABC5/WOI-DT and the Republican Party of Iowa will take place on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10. This debate, to be moderated by ABC News anchors Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos, will be held at a critical moment in the Republican nomination process - less than a month before the state's "first-in-the-nation" caucuses.

The debate will air in primetime from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT nationally on the ABC Television Network, locally on ABC5/WOI-DT, and will air on ABCNews.com and Yahoo.com. It will be the only broadcast network debate in primetime before the caucuses. ABC News will re-air an excerpted version of the debate the following Sunday morning on "This Week with Christiane Amanpour."

The candidates will be asked about the critical issues the country faces in front of a live audience on the campus of Drake University in Des Moines. The debate was initially announced on March 24.

Iowa and New Hampshire have long been make-or-break contests for candidates, and ABC News will be putting the crucial questions of the day to the contenders in both key states during two primetime debates. ABC News previously announced it will host a primetime debate in New Hampshire the Saturday before the Granite State's "first in the nation" primary.
