WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to attend three debates before the Thanksgiving holidays.

Romney's campaign said Friday that he will participate in a Nov. 22 debate in Washington hosted by the Heritage Foundation. He's also set to attend a debate in South Carolina on Nov. 12, as well as next week's debate in Michigan Nov. 9.

Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho says the campaign is still deciding about future debates, including one scheduled in Arizona for Nov. 30. The campaign has also not decided whether to attend a Nov. 19 forum hosted by a socially conservative group in Iowa.

Romney was in Washington Friday speaking to the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, a tea party-allied group.
