Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party

In the midst of a nationwide focus on the final stretch of the Obama and Romney horse race, four presidential candidates will expound on their best ideas in a third-party presidential debate Tuesday night.

Veteran talk show host Larry King of CNN fame will moderate the debate, which will take place at the Hilton Chicago. However, none of the major cable news networks will be covering the event. Not CNN, Fox News, or MSNBC. Only Al-Jazeera English has chosen to broadcast the debate live.

The debate will be sponsored by the non-profit Free and Equal Elections Foundation, whose website will be live-streaming it online. Taking the stage tonight will be Jill Stein (Green Party), Rocky Anderson (Justice Party), Virgil Goode (Constitution Party), and Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party).

They want accountability in the courts and at the ballot box. And they hold not just President Trump responsible, but they hold his allies and Republicans responsible for what happened.”
