Romney To Attend 3 Debates Before Thanksgiving

WASHINGTON (WWJ/AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to attend three debates before the holidays, including the debate at Oakland University next Wednesday evening.

Romney's campaign said Friday that he will participate in a Nov. 22 debate in Washington hosted by the Heritage Foundation.  He's also set to attend a debate in South Carolina on Nov. 12.

On November 9, Romney will visit Rochester Hills to debate seven other Republicans. According to CNBC they are Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman Jr., Ron Paul. Rick Perry and Rick Santorum. The debate is scheduled from 8-10 p.m..

Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said the campaign is still deciding about future debates, including one scheduled in Arizona for Nov. 30. The campaign has also not decided whether to attend a Nov. 19 forum hosted by a socially conservative group in Iowa.

Romney was in Washington Friday speaking to the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, a tea party-allied group.
