FOX News reportedly announced on Monday that Sean Hannity will moderate a red vs. blue state debate between Florida Governor and Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis and California Governor and Democrat Gavin Newsom.
The 90-minute event will air in Georgia on November 30 at 9 p.m. ET, signaling the first time that the two prominent governors will face off.
During his exclusive interview with Gov. Newsom in June, FOX News veteran Sean Hannity first broached the idea of the California Democrat debating DeSantis, who subsequently agreed to participate in July.
Newsom, who has sparked 2024 presidential speculation but said he would not run against fellow Democrat President Biden, has repeatedly challenged DeSantis to debate on a variety of issues; the first was in September 2022 regarding migrants flights to the Massachusetts liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard, a move that forced discussion on sanctuary immigration policies.
FOX News Media will also host the Republican presidential primary debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, from 9 to 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Co-moderators are FOX News anchor Dana Perino, FOX Business presenter Stuart Varney, and Ilia Calderón of Univision.
