On August 23 in Milwaukee, Fox News will hold the first GOP presidential primary debate. The discussion starts at 9 p.m. ET. The first debate’s online live-streaming partner is Rumble, and Young America’s Foundation is another partner.
Ronna McDaniel, GOP candidates debating to beat Joe Biden
Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, claimed that the first GOP debate on Wednesday night marks “the beginning of the general election,” telling Fox News Digital that the candidates are not there to “beat each other” but rather “to beat Joe Biden.”
In Milwaukee, where the RNC will also hold the 2024 Republican National Convention in the summer, Fox News hosts the first Republican presidential primary debate.
McDaniel stated, “I’m so excited to be in Milwaukee and to have the response we’re getting from the city and the excitement around it—I think this is the beginning of the general election. So, for me, this is one step closer to taking back the White House.”
Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, will take center stage because he is the contestant with the highest polling ratings. Biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy will be standing next to DeSantis. Mike Pence, a former vice president, and Nikki Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, will stand on either side of DeSantis and Ramaswamy.
Chris Christie, a former governor of New Jersey, and Tim Scott, a senator from South Carolina, will take the fifth and sixth spots in the debate, with Asa Hutchinson, a former governor of Arkansas, and Doug Burgum, governor of North Dakota, standing on the wings of the stage.
McDaniel told Fox News Digital, “Everybody knows, including him, because I’ve told him—I wish President Donald Trump were on stage tonight. That being said, we have to take back the White House in 2024, and that conversation will begin tonight—it will begin on this debate stage, Americans are looking at our party and saying— How are they going to put solutions in my life to make my life better, safer and stop the disaster that they’re seeing in Joe Biden.”
McDaniel also expressed her expectation that the candidates should discuss policies and “things that Americans care about right now.”
McDaniel stated about the other GOP presidential candidates who were disqualified from the debate on Wednesday night, “I love those candidates, and I’m sorry that the criteria didn’t work for them,” She explained, “You know, we set the rules, we applied the rules evenly without bias, and they have an opportunity to make the next debate stage, and I contend that all of them would also be better than Joe Biden. So we wish them the best.”

While McDaniel expressed the hope that the candidates “contrast with each other,” she added that her “real hope” is that they “really go after Biden and talk about what he’s done to the American people who are paying more for gas or groceries or everything in their lives, who feel less safe in their communities, and whose kids are dealing with deficits.”
