Presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told Glenn Beck Thursday he would "absolutely" attend a Republican debate hosted by TheBlaze TV network.

"I think [TheBlaze] would do an objective debate," Paul said. "The other thing about it is I think you understand the voters. Because we're talking to Republican primary voters right now trying to decide who the Republican will be. I think you get conservative politics, and I've always felt like I was treated fairly."

Paul went on to say that "even when we disagree" he feels Beck treats him fairly.

Asked about the list of demands made by several GOP presidential campaigns, Paul told Beck part of the negotiation should be insisting on "objective" moderators. Paul said the GOP debates are a "commodity" that "20 million people want to watch."

"I think what we should do is negotiate for objective moderators," Paul said. "We shouldn't have people who are opposed to us and want to nitpick and have us at each other's throats.  You know, like to me, a good question would be, 'Governor Bush, you've got a tax plan.  How is it different than Senator Paul's tax plan?'"
