Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich are having a Lincoln-Douglas style debate tonight in Texas, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern.

I’ll be doing a live blog for it, and I’ll try to embed the C-Span live coverage, if that is possible (I don’t think it’s possible, so if anyone has a link to a live embed, let me know).

I’ll turn the blog live shortly before it starts.

This is an interesting twist, mostly because it’s just Cain and Newt.  As I mentioned before, I view this as a chance for Newt to replace Cain as the leading not-Romney; or alternatively, for Cain to show that he can debate with the best of them and that he has the substance needed to make his surge more than temporary.

See you tonight.
