The Republican National Committee Chairmanship race heats up today with a debate to be held at 1 PM (EST). You can watch it here or here.
I will try to post up pre-debate interviews for all of the candidates.

Conversations with a number of strategists close to the RNC – and its 168 voting members – suggest that none of the six candidates in the running are anywhere close to securing the 85 votes needed to claim the chairmanship.
But two tiers of candidates have begun to emerge, with the top three seen as potential winners and the bottom three regarded as longer shots. Given the number of undecided voters and the unpredictability of the ballot process, though, it’s hard to count anyone out at the moment.
Chris Cilliza ranks the candidates.
But, it is difficult to do an accurate whip count at this time.
Now, if Sarah Palin weighs into this race who will she support?
