WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Daily Caller, in conjunction with Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), is pleased to host a debate for Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman candidates. The event will take place in the ballroom of the National Press Club on Monday, January 3rd.
Online voting and audience participation will feature prominently in this year’s debate. Via RNCDebate.org, Americans can both submit questions for candidates and vote on questions submitted by others. During the debate, candidates will answer those questions that received the most votes.
A live-stream of the debate will be available at dailycaller.com and the online audience will have the opportunity to have their follow-up questions answered by submitting them during the debate via Twitter.
Profiles of each candidate will be published on dailycaller.com during the run-up to the debate. Currently, candidates attending the debate include Saul Anuzis, Maria Cino, Reince Priebus and Ann Wagner.
“Our debate will be the most open, democratic (emphasis on the lower case “d”) and technologically advanced debate ever conducted,” said Neil Patel, Daily Caller Publisher. “The combination of online voting on debate questions, live streaming of the event and Twitter use for follow-up questions will allow the American people an unprecedented level of access and involvement to help ensure the best possible leadership for one of our two major political parties.”
“We are pleased to host this debate with The Daily Caller. The actual vote for RNC Chairman will be made by the 168 members of the Committee, but the impact will be felt by all,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “Therefore, every activist should play a role in questioning the candidates and communicating with RNC members who cast votes...just like lobbying your Congressman and Senators.”

Where: National Press Club (529 14th St. NW), 13th floor, ballroom.
