Ronna McDaniel, the Chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC), has announced that Fox News will be hosting the very first Republican primary debate.
She also said that the debate will be accessible to watch on Rumble as well.
“We’re also going to partner with some pretty exciting partners,” McDaniel said during an appearance on Fox & Friends. “For the first time ever, we’re going to live stream on Rumble.”
“We’re getting away from Big Tech, YouTube’s owned by Google. We’re going to have an RNC channel on Rumble. And then the Young Americas Foundation, which is run by Scott Walker, to really reach out to young voters. They’re based in Wisconsin, so they’re going to be a partner as well,” she stated.
Although the Republican primary field continues to fill out, only a few individuals have officially entered the presidential race. However, the date for the debate has not been confirmed yet. Former President Donald Trump declared his candidacy in November, unveiling his “National Greatness Agenda” during a speech at Mar-a-Lago, after two years of speculation.
“We are here tonight to declare it does not have to be this way,” Trump said after laying out the disasters of the Biden administration. “Two years ago we were a great nation and soon we will be a great nation again.”
“The decline being forced upon us by Biden and the radical left lunatics driving us right here into the ground. This decline is not a fate we must accept. When given the choice boldly and clearly, I believe the American people will overwhelmingly reject the left’s path to national ruin and they will embrace our vision for national greatness and glory,” he added.
Despite stating that she would not run if Donald Trump chose to do so, former South Carolina Governor and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, joined the presidential race several months later.
“I would not run if President Trump ran, and I would talk to him about it,” she said in 2021. “That’s something we’ll have a conversation about at some point, if that decision is something that has to be made.”
Trump said that Haley contacted him and they had a conversation about her choice to enter the race.
“I talked to her for a little while. I said, ‘Look, you know, go by your heart if you want to run,'” Trump said. “She called me and said she’d like to consider it, and I said you should do it.”
Anti-woke businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, launched his White House bid that same month, asserting that the country is “in the middle of a national identity crisis today.”
Former Governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, disclosed his intentions to run for the presidency this month and is expected to make an official announcement later this month.
As Trump continues to dominate the GOP 2024 field, attention is still focused on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has yet to announce his plans for the 2024 presidential race.
