ABCs The View Seeking To Host Daytime Republican DebateWhile they’re no stranger to hosting any number of prominent political figures — from congressmen to the president himself — the ladies of ABC’s “The View” are hoping to add “debate moderators” to their repertoire.

This election cycle a View spokesman confirmed that requests have been sent to Republican campaigns for a debate that would take place during the show’s 11 a.m. EST time slot.

In an effort to reach a broader demographic campaigns are reportedly fielding requests from non-traditional venues to host debates, still, Republican candidates might be reluctant to tussle with left-wing moderators like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
