Third party presidential candidates will get their chance to discuss their vision for America Tuesday in a nationally televised debate — online.
Former CNN anchor Larry King will moderate the debate, which will take place at the Chicago Hilton at 9 p.m. and is sponsored by the Free and Equal Elections Foundation. The debate will be broadcast live on the Free and Equal website and Ora TV, an on-demand internet channel where King hosts a show.
Former Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode, the Constitution Party candidate, will join Libertarian candidate and former former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein, and Rocky Anderson from the Justice Party.
Political observers says both Johnson and Goode are believed to have enough support in some battleground states to potentially influence the election. Most polls have third party candidates garnering a total of four to five percent of the registered voters nationwide.
Republican Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama were also invited to the debate, but will instead participate in a nationally televised two-man event on Monday in Boca Raton, Florida centered on foreign policy.
