Detroit News interviews Rick Hall, "Michigan in GOP debate spotlight"

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

The Detroit News spoke to Rick Hall about anticipated topics of discussion at Wednesday's Republican presidential debate, hosted by Oakland University. Eight Republicans are slated to debate including Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum.

In discussing how the debate might play out, Hall told Detroit News reporter Marisa Shultz that with the allegations of sexual harassment surrounding Cain, Perry might have a chance to gather more Republican support. "If Perry can't take advantage of Cain's problems now, it's hard to know when he will," Hall explained.
