Debate season for the 2016 presidential election has officially begun with the first Republican primary debate.
The topic of a national abortion ban sparked heated debate on Wednesday, along with support for the war in Ukraine and climate change. Furthermore, Fox will conduct its second GOP primary debate next month if that wasn’t enough.
All the information we have thus far on the impending debate is as follows:
When is the next Republican debate going to be?
The second Republican primary debate is scheduled for September 27. Time of event is still in flux.
How can I get access to the debate?
Fox Business will broadcast the debate. The debate will also be available on Rumble, a popular online video platform among conservatives, and Univision, which has partnered with the network to make its content available there.
Where will the discussion take place?
In Simi Valley, California, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, the two candidates will square off in a heated discussion.
Who will be the debate’s moderator?
TBD. The moderator for Fox Business’s second debate has not yet been revealed.
How do you get into the second debate, and what are the requirements?
By the 25th of September, candidates must have received at least 3% of the vote in two nationwide surveys, or 3% in one national poll and 3% in two polls taken from distinct early nominating states (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada).
They require at least 50,000 donors spread over 20 states and territories, with 200 of those donors being completely distinct people.
Who among the Republican candidates has been accepted into the second debate?
Although he has met the requirements to participate in the second debate, former President Donald Trump has played down rumours that he may make an appearance, saying on Truth Social on Monday that he will “not be doing the debates.”
Ron DeSantis of Florida, Mike Pence of Indiana, Vivek Ramaswamy of the business world, Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Tim Scott of South Carolina, and Chris Christie of New Jersey are the other contenders who have already qualified.
