Last GOP presidential debate of the year: Here’s the scoop . . .

The last Republican presidential debate of the year is just two days away.

Hosted by CNN, the debate is being held in Las Vegas and the odds are good that along with a real focus on national security and global terrorism, the candidates will be asked to address recent reports about a possible “brokered” or “contested” convention.

After all, Republican-on-Republican violence is one of the media’s favorite pastimes.

In an easy to follow format, CNN laid out everything you need to know about the upcoming debate.

The network broke the information down into four simple categories: When… Where to Watch… Who’s Participating … and Who’s Moderating?

CNN will have an under-card event and then the prime-time draw, but has not announced which candidates will be relegated to the kid’s table.

Reports have suggested that Sen. Rand Paul may be demoted to the secondary event and replaced by N.J. Gov. Chris Christie. Ironically, it was during CNN’s first GOP debate that front-runner Donald Trump said Paul should not be on the main stage.

Here’s the skinny straight from source:

When

“CNN has partnered with Facebook to host the Republican debate on Tuesday, December 15. The debate will actually be split into two debates. CNN’s coverage of the first debate will begin at 6:00 p.m. ET and coverage of the second debate will start at 8:30 p.m. ET.”

“Wolf Blitzer, CNN’s anchor of “The Situation Room” and “Wolf,” will serve as moderator of the debate. CNN’s Dana Bash and Salem Radio Network host Hugh Hewitt will serve as panelists questioning the candidates.”
