Gingrich to Do Lincoln/Douglas Debate with Huntsman

Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman will do a Lincoln/Douglas style debate in New Hampshire on December 12, reports the Associated Press. 

“We look forward to discussing the issues that matter to the American people in a serious, substantive debate with Speaker Gingrich later this month.  It is telling that Governor Romney has declined to participate because this substantive format makes it hard for him to hide from his record,” said Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller in a statement.

According to RealClearPolitics, the Romney campaign turned down the Gingrich camp’s invitation to do a Lincoln/Douglas style debate.
