From the Miami Herald:
Tom Tancredo, the Colorado politician who once compared Miami to ''a Third World country,'' is the only Republican presidential candidate who will be absent from the Univisión Spanish-language debate in Coral Gables next month.
It's not likely many Floridians will miss the Colorado congressman, though. He's polling in the single digits -- 1 percent -- and admits his chances of becoming the party nominee are ``a long shot.''
Low poll numbers aren't stopping other lesser-knowns, such as Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter, who followed Arizona Sen. John McCain in September in announcing they would participate in the debate. That led to a domino effect that prompted all the other top-tier candidates to agree to the debate. The other holdout, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, announced Tuesday he will be there.
The debate, to be carried live nationwide by Univisión, will be held Dec. 9 at the University of Miami.
