Mesa chosen for Arizona Republican debate

A nationally televised Arizona debate for Republican president candidates will be held Nov. 30 in the Mesa Arts Center.

State Republican Party Chairman Tom Morrissey announced the selection of the venue on Tuesday.

The debate is being sponsored by the Arizona Republican Party and the Cable News Network. A date previously considered for the debate was Dec. 1.

The Republican National Committee authorized the debate during talks with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer last summer.

Brewer said in a statement released by the state party that hosting the debate is a tremendous honor for Arizona that will allow its voters to get a close look at the candidates.
