The weekly political magazine National Journal, with sponsorship from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), has announced that it will present “Building Opportunity: Solutions for the American Dream,” a forum featuring the presidential candidates. The event is scheduled to be held on Jan. 20 in Las Vegas during the NAHB’s Design and Construction Week.

The forum will be presented in sponsorship with the Las Vegas PBS affiliate. In a statement released by the event organizers, the forum is being presented as a stage that will provide the candidates with “the opportunity to address the most pressing economic and domestic policy issues before the largest annual gathering of the housing industry in the country.”

It is not certain which candidates will be featured at this forum, which takes place prior to the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire Primary. To date, a specific discussion of housing issues has been absent from the televised presidential debates, and it has not been the primary focus of any candidate’s domestic agenda. A housing-related presidential candidate forum held in New Hampshire last week only attracted a single Democrat (Martin O’Malley) and a handful of low-polling Republicans including Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee and George Pataki.
