(RICHMOND) - Richmond and Wayne County officials are putting in a bid to host a 2008 presidential or vice presidential debate.

Economic Development Corporation of Wayne County President James Dinkle tells "Inside Indiana Business" that a national debate of this kind could have an economic impact on East Central Indiana of about 43 million dollars.
