Talk show icon King to moderate 3rd party debate
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Larry King, the celebrated talk show host accustomed to A-list interview guests, has signed on to moderate a debate featuring minor-party presidential candidates.
The former CNN giant will moderate a debate Tuesday in Chicago that will be broadcast on the Internet. The candidates taking part are the Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson, the Green Party's Jill Stein, the Constitution Party's Virgil Goode and the Justice Party's Rocky Anderson.
King told The Associated Press that it's clear none of them will win, but he says they all deserve a voice in the presidential race. Democrats and Republicans are keeping tabs on Johnson and Goode, two ex-Republicans who could be factors in key battleground states.
King left CNN in 2010 and now hosts a show on Ora.TV, an on-demand Internet channel.
