investorpoliticsletters2 Thought the Debates Were Over? Not Yet[1]Just when you thought it was safe … there’s one more presidential debate[2]. No, it won’t feature either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. This is the third-party debate.

Moderated by Larry King and appearing tonight on Ora TV, the debate will feature four third-party candidates for the Presidency: Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, Jill Stein of the Green Party, Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party and Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party. The debate will also be streamed lived by Russia Today.

Hosted by the Free and Equal Elections Foundation, the debate aims to have a serious discussion about issues that the organizers feel have been overlooked in the recent major debates. Topics will include foreign policy, economics and civil liberties.

The last third-party candidate to participate in a major debate was Ross Perot in 1992.
