Alexandria, VA – Independent Journal Review, a leading social-first news company, will partner with ABC News to host the New Hampshire Republican Primary debate. It will be Independent Journal Review’s first presidential debate and will be held at St. Anselm College on Saturday, February 6, 2016. The debate will air live in primetime on the ABC Television network and WMUR-TV, ABC’s Hearst-owned affiliate in Manchester, New Hampshire. This event is one of the debates officially sanctioned by the RNC.
2016 will mark the 100th year of the New Hampshire primary, and Independent Journal Review will utilize its signature brand of mobile-first original content to expand the viewership of the New Hampshire GOP primary debate to millions of Americans beyond the traditional ABC News television audience.
“New Hampshire voters are independent-minded, they love their country and just plain enjoy discussing politics, and that means New Hampshire is truly Independent Journal Review country,” stated Independent Journal Review founder Alex Skatell. “We’re excited to be in the First In The Nation state for our first presidential debate, and to partner with ABC News.”
