CNN and WJXT-TV in Jacksonville will host a debate between Gov. Rick Scott and Charlie Crist on Oct. 21, the network confirmed today.
Jake Tapper will join WJXT-TV anchor and reporter Kent Justice at WJXT's Jacksonville studio to co-moderate the 7p.m. debate. "During each broadcast, CNN will invite viewers to react to the candidates with an online focus group tool powered by Microsoft's Bing Pulse. Following each debate, the online sentiment tracker will reveal independent, Democrat and Republican reaction, underlining highs and lows and which topics resonated most with viewers."
