GOP says Ohioans to ask questions for Ga. debate

Published:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio Republicans will get some input -- from afar -- into a March 1 presidential primary debate in Atlanta.

The state party says it is partnering with Georgia Republicans for the CNN "Super Tuesday" debate. Georgia, with 76 delegates, and Ohio, with 66, are the two biggest prizes among the March 6 primary states.

Participants at an Ohio location will get a chance to pose questions to the candidates. The state GOP will announce the venue and details later.

Ohio tea party activists participated remotely in the CNN-Tea Party Express presidential debate in Tampa, Fla., last September.
