ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., July 16, 2015—CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, today announced it will host a Republican presidential debate at the University of Colorado Boulder on Wednesday, October 28. CNBC's "Your Money, Your Vote: The Presidential Debate on the Economy" will focus on the key issues that matter to all voters—jobs, taxes, the deficit and the health of our national economy. The RNC sanctioned debate will be held at the Coors Events Center at CU-Boulder and broadcast exclusively on CNBC.
"Presidential elections are often won or lost based on core economic positions, understandings and values," said Mark Hoffman, CNBC Chairman. "Our nation's economy and place in the world, job growth, entrepreneurship and the pursuit of the American dream live at the very center of CNBC's mission each day and will be the centerpiece of our line of focused questioning at this debate."
"We are delighted to host the first of the Republican presidential candidate debates to be held on a university campus. We have a long history at CU-Boulder of hosting high-profile visitors who bring exciting and engaging opportunities for our students and community to hear a variety of viewpoints.
