With one contentious and controversial debate behind them, the Republican presidential hopefuls have another chance Tuesday night to make their case to voters. The Fox Business Network and The Wall Street Journal host the bout centered on economic issues in Milwaukee - and the programming line-up for the evening includes an hour devoted to libertarian views.

The primetime debate will be followed by a one-hour special edition of “Cavuto” - and some special interest programming. John Stossel hosts a midnight foray into the libertarian reaction to the debate, complete with a live studio audience. He currently hosts his own weekly consumer interest show on the Fox Business Network.

The libertarians are not too happy at the moment, in the meantime.

“No wonder the two old parties’ approval ratings are at an all-time low, Democratic and Republican politicians in Washington, D.C. are lavishing taxpayer money on their K Street pals while raising taxes and printing money to pay for it, devaluing the dollar, and selling the rest of the country down the river,” declares,” Libertarian National Committee chairman Nicholas Sarwark.

Moderators for Tuesday night include Fox Business anchors Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo, plus Wall Street Journal editor-in-chief Gerard Baker for the main event. Fox correspondents Sandra Smith, Trish Regan plus Gerald Seib — Washington bureau chief for The Journal — will moderate the undercard event. Both debates focus on jobs, taxes, and the general health of the economy, as well as domestic and international policy issues.
