The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced on Thursday it had selected NewsNation, "The Megyn Kelly Show" on SiriusXM, the Washington Free Beacon and Rumble as partners for the fourth Republican presidential primary debate, which will take place in Tuscaloosa on December 6.
As with the first three debates, Rumble will be the exclusive RNC livestream provider and the RNC’s online home for the fourth debate.
The fourth debate will be moderated by SiriusXM's Megyn Kelly, NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas and the Washington Free Beacon’s Eliana Johnson.
“I am thrilled to announce that the RNC has sanctioned the fourth Republican primary debate in Alabama with NewsNation, The Megyn Kelly Show, the Washington Free Beacon, and Rumble as our partners. With less than a year out from Election Day 2024, the fourth debate stage will showcase our winning Republican agenda against Biden’s record of failure.” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.
The debate will be held on the campus of the University of Alabama's Frank Moody Music Building.
"I am thrilled the fourth Republican presidential debate has been finalized, and that it will be in the Yellowhammer State. This is an amazing opportunity for the state of Alabama, as well as primary voters across the country. Alabama is one of the strongest Republican states in the nation, and I think it’s fitting that we host a primary debate as candidates fight for the support of conservative voters," Wahl said.
Sean Compton, Nexstar’s president of Networks, said, “All of us at NewsNation are incredibly honored to be hosting a presidential primary debate and to be part of what will be another historic election season.”
“We are also extremely pleased to have the opportunity to introduce more Americans to NewsNation, a 24-hour national news network, committed to delivering outstanding journalism and first-rate political coverage and analysis,” he said.
Kelly said, “It will be the margarita of debates – spicy, fun and somewhat intoxicating. Looking forward to it.”
Johnson said, “The Free Beacon is excited to partner with The Megyn Kelly Show and NewsNation to offer the candidates a debate platform outside of the mainstream media echo chamber and to give Republican primary voters a debate where conservative ideas and values will be the terrain and not the target.”
Rumble chairman and CEO Chris Pavlovski said, “Rumble is looking forward to partnering with the RNC again for the Fourth Presidential Primary Debate of the 2024 cycle.”
“Our platform continues to hold the line to protect a free and open internet, and we are thrilled to continue providing an online debate stage for the RNC,” he added.
