University of Houston to host Feb. 26 NBC/Telemundo GOP debate

The Feb. 26 Republican presidential debate sponsored by NBC News and Telemundo will take place at the University of Houston, debate organizers announced Tuesday.

This NBC/Telemundo debate will be the final one before the crucial "Super Tuesday" primary contests in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia on March 1. Alaska, Minnesota and Wyoming also will award delegates on that same day.

“This debate comes at a pivotal moment in the election cycle. We’re delighted to host a national conversation with real-life impact on our community and country, and welcome an evening of engaging discourse to our campus,” said University of Houston System Chancellor and UH President Renu Khator.
