(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Fox News host Sean Hannity is going to moderate a debate between California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in November. The debate is going to be aired on Fox at 9 p.m. on November 30 and has already been announced by the network.
The location of the event has not yet been set, but it is expected to run for 90 minutes. Hannity in a statement about the event said that he was “looking forward” to releasing to viewers an informative debate that will examine issues that Americans deal with every day as well as different governing philosophies.
The debate is going to take place while DeSantis is working to establish himself as a solid challenger who can take on former President Donald Trump in the 2024 Republican primary race. Trump is currently leading the primary polls by double digits.
On Wednesday, DeSantis participated in the Republican primary debate which was aired on Fox Business Network. This was the second primary debate that Trump skipped. Previously he skipped the first GOP presidential debate which took place last month. As he has stated, his large lead in the presidential race and Fox’s hostility towards him are reasons for him not to attend the race.
Trump has often ridiculed the network and their attempts to help boost DeSantis’s campaign and block him from winning back the White House. Despite his criticisms of Fox, Trump has made several appearances on the network in the past few months, including on Hannity.
