GOP Gears Up For Sunday's NBC News Facebook Debate

The GOP candidates are getting ready to rumble this weekend in New Hampshire at the presidential primary debate streaming on Facebook through a partnership with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” presidential primary debate.

Set your alarm clocks, because this debate starts Sunday at 9 a.m. Eastern Time, only two days before the nation’s first primary in the Granite State.

The audience can tune in or log on in a number of ways, in what promises to be a spirited debate following the wild finish between Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney in Iowa.

Not only will the debate stream live on the “Meet the Press” Facebook page and Facebook’s U.S. Politics page, but viewers can share questions and comment on the action throughout the event.

Care to skip the morning alarm? Facebookers can also ask their questions in advance, here. A sampling of recent questions are posted below.

The debate will also be available on-demand on the “Meet the Press” Facebook page and Facebook’s U.S. politics page.

Facebook’s U.S. politics page is offering a look behind-the-scenes in the days leading up to the battle in Concord, New Hampshire’s Chubb Theater.

The Facebook and NBC News debate will be moderated by “Meet the Press” host David Gregory, who will be joined by the New Hampshire Union Leader.

An NBC News/Marist poll of New Hampshire voters due out Friday may give a better indication of whether the man with momentum, Rick Santorum, is catching up to front-runner Mitt Romney after the virtual tie in the Iowa caucus, which should make Sunday’s action that much more interesting.
