Fox News To Host First Presidential Debate

According to a report, the Republican National Committee (RNC) said last Wednesday that Fox News and the online video platform Rumble would webcast the initial 2024 GOP presidential primary debate from Wisconsin in the month of August. 

For this debate, Fox is partnering with the Young America’s Foundation (YAF).

Ronna McDaniel, RNC chairwoman, told Fox she was pleased to announce that Fox News, the Young America’s Foundation, and Rumble will be hosting the first debate in Milwaukee. 

Fox News will air the debate in its entirety, while Rumble will serve as the primary live-streaming partner, according to the report. 

She said that the RNC is thrilled to be able to broadcast on Rumble instead of YouTube because of the independence it would provide from big tech.

According to Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski, the platform’s stated aim to safeguard free expression is more than simply a slogan.  It is deeply ingrained in the company’s culture.

YAF will facilitate communication with young voters, many of whom get their news from sites like Instagram and TikTok.

When asked if Republican Presidential candidates would swear to support the eventual GOP nominee, McDaniel said it is about defeating President Joe Biden. The goal is to counteract the current political climate in the nation. Everyone running for office must commit to working together from the start.

As reported, former President Donald J. Trump declared his candidacy last November and is now leading in the polls for the Republican nomination in 2024. Several possible challengers to the nomination are beginning to emerge.

According to The Hill, it’s hardly shocking that the initial primary debate will air on Fox News. In 2015, the first Republican primary debate took place in Cleveland, and the network with a conservative bent sponsored it. Due to the enormous number of Republicans running for nomination that year, the debate had to be divided into two groups.
