2012 GOP Presidential Debate Set for May 2

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.
