Fox News adding two more presidential debates

Fox News will sponsor two more Republican presidential debates, the network said Thursday, one each before the Iowa caucuses and South Carolina primary.

Via the New York Times:

The network will join with the Republican Party of Iowa for a debate on Dec. 15 in Sioux City. That debate will be just over two weeks before the state’s Jan. 3 caucuses.

Fox will also partner with the Republican Party of South Carolina to hold a debate in Myrtle Beach on Jan. 16. South Carolina is scheduled to hold its primary on Jan. 21.

The candidates have already debated eight times since May, including five times in the last seven weeks. Their next debate is scheduled for Nov. 9 in Michigan.
