Republican Party Makes Big Debate Announcement – Get Ready for Some Major Fireworks, Patriots

What’s Happening:

The very first Republican presidential debate is slated for this week. Donald Trump turned his back on the event, opening the door for many other candidates to get their message out. Fox News, which is hosting the event, announced that eight candidates will be debating on the momentous night.

The actual lineup for the event has been announced. The GOP just released a chart of where each candidate will stand. And right in center-stage are the top-polling candidates. And this will surely lead to some lively back-and-forth.

From Fox News:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy will stand center stage at Wednesday night’s first GOP presidential nomination debate, according to a lineup released Tuesday by the Republican National Committee.

Standing alongside DeSantis and Ramaswamy at the debate – a Fox News-hosted showdown in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – will be former Vice President Mike Pence and former ambassador and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

The top Republican contenders will take center stage at this week’s GOP debate. Ron DeSantis will be standing beside Vivek Ramaswamy. These two have been going neck-and-neck in the polling recently.

Ramaswamy is a biotech businessman who is known as the anti-woke CEO. He has been rising in the polls recently, thanks to his unapologetic stances on the border and other critical issues. He will have to contend with Gov. DeSantis, who is known for his war against woke in Florida.

Close beside them are two former members of the Trump administration, Mike Pence and Nikki Haley. Both DeSantis and Ramaswamy will be able to dig into these two for their roles in the former administration. And all these candidates will be taking a hard look at each other’s platforms.

This will be the first time these candidates debate, making their cases to the American public. I’m sure voters are expecting big moments, as candidates will be looking to make a statement that will go viral.

Donald Trump’s surrogates wanted to be present at the debate, so they could take swings at these candidates. Their credentials were revoked by Fox News, paving the way for one of the candidates who showed up to the debate to take the ball and run with it.

Whoever comes out top dog this night, might end up dominating the election.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Republican Party announced the stage lineup for the first GOP debate.
  • DeSantis and Ramaswamy will be taking center-stage, beside Pence and Haley.
  • Both men are known for their strong opposition to woke policies.
