The Labor Day event, called The Palmetto Freedom Forum, will be more of a question-and-answer session rather than a debate, event organizers said. The GOP candidates will be asked to offer concrete plans for fixing the debt and growing the economy.
Not every Republican hopeful will be invited, though. Candidates must meet a threshold of 5 percent in an average of national polls conducted by the website RealClearPolitics.
Questions will come from three panelists: DeMint, Iowa Rep. Steve King and Robert P. George, founder of the American Principles Project, which is sponsoring the event.
“It is an effort to band together and put people through a real interview-type process,” one DeMint supporter involved in the event planning told CNN. “I can’t take another candidate who says he or she is for limited government and then doesn’t do anything about it.
