The Ticket

Liveblogging the GOP debate in Tampa with GQ, ABC News and Yahoo News

The Ticket

Has debate fatigue finally set in? In an extremely unscientific poll at the Ticket on Monday, almost 56 percent of of the first 15,000 readers who responded said they wouldn't be watching the debate in Tampa on NBC. Guess what: We're liveblogging it anyway.

During the debate, read and contribute to our conversation, which will feature real-time discussion and analysis from Yahoo News and ABC News journalists, including David Chalian, the Washington bureau chief for Yahoo News; Rick Klein, the senior Washington editor for ABC News' "World News with Diane Sawyer"; Walter Shapiro, the "Character Sketch" columnist for Yahoo News; Chris Suellentrop, the deputy editor for blogs--including the Ticket--at Yahoo News; and Z. Byron Wolf, the political editor of ABCNews.com and a deputy political director for ABC News.

Also participating will be contributors to GQ's politics blog, Death Race 2012, and Jeff Greenfield, a veteran political correspondent.

Marin Cogan is a GQ correspondent; Reid Cherlin is a Death Race 2012 contributor and a former assistant press secretary for President Barack Obama; Devin Gordon and Mark Lotto are senior editors at GQ.

Greenfield is the host of PBS' "Need to Know," and the author, most recently, of Then Everything Changed, which will be published in paperback next month.

Reader comments to the liveblog will be moderated by Dylan Stableford, a media reporter for Yahoo News.

Our discussion begins at 8:45 p.m. ET, and the debate begins at 9 p.m. ET. You can watch it online here.
