The co-hosts of The View are interested in moderating a Republican presidential debate, according to reports.

A producer for The View has confirmed that offers have been made to several Republicans to appear in a daytime debate as the 2012 election draws closer.

The debate would air live during The View's east coast timeslot of 11am EST and be repeated later in the central and western time zones, reports The Huffington Post.

A rep for The View has not yet confirmed which candidates will take part.

Prior to the 2008 presidential election, candidates Barack Obama and John McCain both granted interviews to Barbara Walters and her View co-hosts while on the campaign trail.

In October, Hank Williams Jr discussed his controversial comparison of Obama to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during an interview on The View.
