GW will not house a Republican presidential candidate debate, a spokesperson for the University said Wednesday night.

“We were approached about being a host site for a Republican presidential debate, but there is no debate scheduled to be held at the University at this time,” University spokeswoman Candace Smith said.

Word spread Tuesday and Wednesday that GW could be the home for the Nov. 15 debate on foreign policy and national security. The debate would be co-hosted by the American Enterprise Institute, CNN and the Heritage Foundation.
