"GMA" TO HOLD TOWN HALL MEETINGS WITH LEADING DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
-- Roberts to Anchor the Morning Program from Des Moines, Iowa --
"Good Morning America" co-anchor, Robin Roberts, will host a "GMA Town Hall" with presidential candidate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY). The town hall meeting will focus on health care, including an emphasis on the state of health care for America's veterans. Roberts will co-anchor the morning program from Des Moines, Iowa, where a live audience of American voters will have the chance to ask the Senator questions. In addition, viewers watching at home will also have the chance to submit questions via abcnews.com and many of the email questions will be posed to the candidate during the broadcast.
In addition to Senator Clinton, ABC News' "Good Morning America" has invited the leading Democratic and Republican presidential candidates to participate in their own town hall meetings on "GMA". Invitations were sent to Democratic candidates Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and former Senator John Edwards (D-NC) as well as Republican candidates Rudolph Giuliani, former New York City Mayor, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
