New Hampshire Debate to Focus on Economic Issues Including Jobs, Taxes, Deficits and Debt

WASHINGTON, DC – April 14, 2011—Charlie Rose, executive editor and anchor of CHARLIE ROSE, will moderate The Washington Post-Bloomberg Republican presidential debate on October 11 at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.

The Washington Post-Bloomberg debate will focus on the issues voters say they care about most: jobs, deficit, taxes and the economy. The debate will be the first of the 2012 Presidential campaign devoted to the single subject of the U.S. economy. Three years after the most severe downturn in the economy since the Great Depression, the candidates will debate over federal spending, deficits and debt, Social Security, Medicare, financial regulatory reform, taxes and the top issue in national polls: jobs.

Partnering with The Washington Post, Bloomberg News, and Dartmouth College will be WBIN-TV, the Derry, New Hampshire television station which will broadcast the debate statewide. Bloomberg Television will broadcast the debate globally, and it will be streamed live on, which has 16 million users.
