Who is eligible for this and when?

When is the second Republican debate?

The second Republican primary debate will be held on September 27 at 9:00 PM ET at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

Fox Business will co-moderate the second debate with Univision, and conservative online video platform Rumble will also stream it.

What are the requirements to be eligible for the debate?

The threshold for the second debate is higher than for the first. Candidates must poll 3% in two national polls or 3% in one national poll and 3% in one early state poll from two separate early voting states – Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina – recognized by the Republican National Committee . For the first debate, the poll requirement was 1% in the same poll categories.

Polls must be held on or after August 1, and candidates have until 48 hours before the debate to complete the voting requirement.

Candidates must also have a minimum of 50,000 unique donors on their main presidential campaign committee or exploratory committee, with at least 200 unique donors per state or territory in more than twenty states and/or territories. That’s an increase of 10,000 unique donors over the 40,000 needed to take the stage for the first primary debate.

Who has qualified for the second debate?

The RNC has not yet released its list of participants, but so far it seems likely that former President Donald Trump, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamey, former Ambassador to the UN and Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley, former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, former Vice President Mike Pence, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott have likely qualified.

Former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum appear not to have qualified yet.

Who moderates the debate?

Fox News’ Stuart Varney and Dana Perino will moderate the debate, along with Univision’s Ilia Calderón.

Does Trump plan to attend?

Former President Donald Trump did not attend the first debate, but instead sat for an interview with Tucker Carlson which was streamed at the same time the debate aired. Here’s what he said about why he didn’t run: “You see, the polls have come out, I’m ahead by 50 and 60 points. And some of them are at one and zero and two. And I say, ‘Should I sitting for an hour or two hours, whatever it will be, and being harassed by people who shouldn’t even be running for president? Should I do that? And a network that’s not exactly friendly, to be honest.” “

If this remains his criteria – an overwhelming lead in the polls – it seems likely he will also skip the second debate, but he has not yet said whether he plans to participate.

Trump also did not sign the RNC’s “loyalty pledge” to support the candidate who wins the Republican nomination.
