The Republican debate begins tonight at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, where potential candidates for the 2024 presidential election (with one predictable exception) will take the stage for the second time.
This time only seven of the GOP candidates will appear on stage, 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 will take place on Wednesday, September 27 at 9 pm ET / 6 pm PT.
The two-hour debate will air live on Fox News Channel and Fox Business, while a Spanish version will appear on Univision. If you have a cable subscription, you can also watch the simulcast that Fox and Univision will display on their websites.
Without cable, you can still watch the live stream from some streaming services, including Fox Nation, Univision’s Vix, and through Fox channels on DirecTV Stream, FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, and Sling. You can also watch the debate for free from the Republican Party channel on the conservative video platform Rumble. The debate will not be broadcast on YouTube, as Rumble is the official partner of the event.
These are the Republican candidates who qualified for the debate:
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson did not qualify for the second debate, as he fell short of the Republican National Committee’s voting requirement.
Fox News host Dana Perino, Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney and Univision news host Ilia Calderón will moderate the debate.
Like the last presidential debate, Trump will not appear during tonight’s event. Instead, Trump plans to give a speech to the United Auto Workers strike in Detroit, Michigan.
