2008 Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes was excluded from today's CNBC/MSNBC debate in Michigan.
"I think it is shameful that someone with Dr. Alan Keyes' experience in government and credentials in the conservative movement is being kept out of the debate. Voters in Michigan and across the country deserve to hear what this man has to say about where this country is and where it's going. He brings a principled, moral perspective to this race that nobody else brings," Genesee County Republican Party Board member Judy Zabik said.
The reason given for Keyes exclusion from the debate is that he wasn't on the invitation list made on September 11, before he announced his candidacy.
