Internet giant Google is teaming up with Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News to host a debate among the Republican candidates for US president and giving the public the opportunity to ask questions.

The Fox News/Google Debate will be held in Orlando, Florida, on September 22 and will be hosted by Fox News anchor Bret Baier, Google and News Corp.-owned Fox News said Thursday.

The debate will be broadcast live on Fox News and live-streamed on Google-owned YouTube.

Questions for the Republicans vying for the party’s 2012 presidential nomination can be submitted by video or text at youtube.com/foxnewsYouTube.

Users can vote on the submitted questions and those receiving the most votes will be asked at the debate.

“The Fox News/Google Debate will combine the questions you submit on YouTube with maps, facts and information to enrich and guide the discussion,” YouTube’s head of news and politics Steve Grove said in a blog post.

“Throughout the evening, we’ll use Google?s public data and search trends on air to give greater context to the questions, and help you make a more informed decision at the polls come November 2012,” Grove added.
