In what will be one in an already packed schedule, Google and Fox News are teaming up for a Republican Presidential Primary Debate this month.

The debate will take place in Orlando, Florida on September 22nd and will be broadcast live on the Fox News Channel as well as streamed live on YouTube.

According to the YouTube blog, this debate will be interactive and rely heavily on user-submitted questions. Beginning today, interested parties can submit their questions for consideration to the Fox News channel via video or text.

Viewers will be able to vote on which questions they want to see the candidates debate –

The Fox News/Google Debate will combine the questions you submit on YouTube with maps, facts and information to enrich and guide the discussion. You can vote thumbs up or down on the questions using Google Moderator, and many of the top-voted will be put straight to the candidates to answer.

From the Fox News side of it, they have announced the moderator for the debate: Fox News host Bret Baier. Fox News’ Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly will also be on the panel.

During the debate, the broadcast will include real-time public data and search trends from Google – a way to visualize the chatter about the questions and the candidates’ answers.

The debate is set to kick off at 9 pm ET.
