Advertisements This has not shown up in Tribune yet but Fox News will be broadcasting a GOP Presidential debate on August 11th at 8pm CDT, 9 pm EDT, 6 pm PDT. The debate is 2 hours long and will have these nine candidates who are in the Iowa Straw Poll. The candidates listed on the ballot for the Aug. 13 straw poll are: Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Thaddeus McCotter, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. Those with less than 1% in a national poll will not be invited. Wait!!! I just read that list hoping to see Gary Johnson and who the heck is Thaddeus McCotter?
