Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and California Gov. Gavin Newsom will debate on November 30 on Fox News, the network announced on Monday.
The televised 90-minute debate will be moderated by Fox News host Sean Hannity live from Georgia.
“I look forward to the opportunity to debate Gavin Newsom over our very different visions for the future of our country,” DeSantis said on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
DeSantis’ campaign spokesman echoed the Florida governor in a statement.
“Whether Newsom or Biden is the Democrat nominee in ’24, they both offer the same failed and dangerous ideology for America that helped get us into this mess. We look forward to putting Ron DeSantis’ record of success up against it,” the statement read.
Newsom spokesperson Nathan Click confirmed the news with a statement of his own while also slamming DeSantis.
“We’ve agreed to the debate — provided there is no cheering section, no hype videos or any of the other crutches Desantis requested,” he said.
“One, Biden’s agenda is ultimately just trying to take the California agenda nationally anyways,” DeSantis said at a rally. “California leftism is kind of how the Democratic Party operates.”
DeSantis went on, claiming, that “Biden may not be the candidate” and that Newsom may instead become the Democratic nominee.
