The Republican debate kicks off at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, tonight, where the potential candidates for the 2024 presidential election (with one predictable exception) will take the stage for a second time.
Only seven of the Republican Party’s candidates will appear onstage this time around, as not everyone we saw during the last debate made the cut. If you’re interested in tuning in, here’s what you need to know.
The second Republican debate takes place on Wednesday, September 27th, at 9PM ET / 6PM PT.
The two-hour debate will air live on the Fox News Channel and Fox Business, while a Spanish-language version will appear on Univision. If you have a cable subscription, you can also watch the simultaneous stream that Fox and Univision will show on their websites.
Without cable, you can still catch the stream live from some streaming services, including Fox Nation, Univision’s Vix, and via Fox’s channels on DirecTV Stream, FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, and Sling. You can also watch the debate for free from the GOP’s channel on the conservative-focused video platform Rumble. The debate won’t air on YouTube, as Rumble is the official partner for the event.
Here are the Republican candidates who qualified for the debate:
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson didn’t qualify for the second debate, as he fell short of the Republican National Committee’s polling requirement.
Fox News host Dana Perino, Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney, and Univision news anchor Ilia Calderón will moderate the debate.
Just like the last presidential debate, Trump will not make an appearance during tonight’s event. Instead, Trump plans on making a speech to striking United Auto Workers in Detroit, Michigan.
