Yet Another Republican Debate Tonight, Number 19

There’s another Republican debate tonight, this one in Florida, on MSNBC. I’ll be liveblogging, as usual, and check into the Corner.

The line-up will be a little smaller this time around; Giuliani, Romney, McCain, Huckabee and Paul. Action starts at 9 p.m. eastern.
The good news is that we two pretty good moderators, Brian Williams and Tim Russert. (They’ve each done at least two Democratic debates, but I think this is their first Republican one.) Chris Matthews has been banished to anchoring the pre- and post-debate shows.
By the way, we’ve had 20 Democratic debates, 18 Republican ones. (While I’ve missed a few in there, I still feel overworked.) Next Wednesday, the Republican candidates will debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley; the Democrats will debate at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood on Thursday.
