The top GOP presidential contenders sat out last month’s first Republican presidential debate, but they’ll duke it out Monday night at the next debate in Manchester, New Hampshire. Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, and Newt Gingrich—all of whom skipped last month’s debate—will be among the seven presidential candidates to take the stage, joining Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, and Ron Paul. Notably absent still is John Huntsman, who is expected to formally declare his candidacy soon.
