Things begin to get in line for the 2016 GOP Presidential Sweepstakes……
The 2014 midterm elections are days away, but preparation are already underway for the first debate of the 2016 presidential primary contest.
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation announced on Thursday that it will invite GOP presidential candidates to attend a televised debate at California’s Reagan Library in September 2015.
Former first lady Nancy Reagan noted that the country is less than a year away from the beginning of an important national conversation. “I can’t think of a better way to honor my husband than to keep the tradition of Reagan Library-hosted debates alive,” she said.
The announcement comes more than two years before voters will decide President Barack Obama’s successor. But in some ways, the next presidential contest is already up and running.
Prospective Republican White House hopefuls have been jockeying for position while helping their GOP colleagues in midterm contests from Iowa to New Hampshire in recent weeks. The list includes Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.Share on Facebook
