The first Republican presidential debate is set for May 2 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, Calif., the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation announced Monday.
Just one Republican so far has formed a presidential exploratory committee, and none have officially announced they are running for president. However, a crowded field is expected to develop this year, perhaps in time for the debate.
Moderators will be NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams and Politico Editor-in-Chief John F. Harris. The debate will be shown on MSNBC, CNBC and Telemundo.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
