University Of Houston Will Host GOP Debate Days Before Super Tuesday


The University of Houston will remain as the host site for the Republican presidential debate just days before Super Tuesday on Feb. 25, CNN announced Thursday.

The debate will be moderated by Wolf Blitzer at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music Opera House, according to the release. It will be broadcast in Spanish on Telemundo.

Blitzer will be joined by Telemundo News co-anchor Maria Celeste Arrarás, talk radio host Hugh Hewitt and CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash.

The Republican National Committee announced in mid-January that it ended its partnership with NBC News, the original broadcast partner for the Super Tuesday debate, and awarded the debate to CNN. Because of the changes, it was unclear if the University of Houston would remain as the host site.
