GOP Candidates React to Presidential Speech/Debate Scheduling Conflict

Mitt Romney's Campaign:

"Next Wednesday night TV viewers will have a choice between Republican candidates talking about the future of America, or Barack Obama talking about the future of his presidency," Romney Spokeswoman Andrea Saul said.

Rick Perry's Campaign:

"Governor Perry looks forward to talking about his plans to get America Working Again. Another speech by President Obama will have no impact on the debate."
