The first Republican primary debate for the 2024 presidential election will take place in Milwaukee, which will also host the party’s national convention that year.
The Republican National Committee has announced that the first debate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination would be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in August.
The RNC confirmed on Thursday that the debate will take place in Milwaukee, coinciding with the party’s summer conference. Also, Milwaukee will host the Republican National Convention in 2024.
Fox News obtained an internal communication from RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel to committee members in which she made headlines.
McDaniel elaborated, adding that additional debates have not been sanctioned and that the particular requirements for the first debate have not been established, but that the first debate itself has been approved.
According to Republican sources, the RNC seriously contemplated using the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California to host the first primary debate.
Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina and current ambassador, declared her candidacy last week, joining former President Donald Trump, who launched his 2024 campaign in November. This week saw the participation of conservative commentator, author, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
Fox News reported last week that the Standing Committee on Presidential Debates is considering requiring all Republican White House hopefuls to declare support for the party’s final nominee before being allowed to participate in debates. Any such promise would be based on one made during the contentious Republican primary election in 2016.
At the same time, Trump and other potential nominees are pushing back against the idea of making a loyalty oath.
