The debate will be unique in the fact that subject matter experts will be asking the candidates questions or, as all-star panelist of The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy and Epoch Times Editor-at-Large Roger Simon puts it, “No Chris Wallaces interrupting the candidates when they are trying to make their points.”
