The third Republican debate ahead of the 2024 presidential election is set to take place tonight in Miami, Florida. The field has narrowed down to five candidates who will likely spar on issues like the Israel-Hamas war, especially as Congress prepares a new funding package for Israel. Front-runner Donald Trump is, yet again, not among them.
If you’re interested in tuning in, here’s what you need to know.
The third GOP debate takes place on Wednesday, November 8th, at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT and is expected to last two hours.
NBC News is hosting this debate, and it will air live on the network’s television channel, streaming platforms, and website (NBCNews.com).
Like the September debate, the Republican National Committee has partnered with the alternative video-sharing platform Rumble, and the debate will be livestreamed from the RNC’s channel.
Since September, two candidates, North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum and former Vice President Mike Pence, have either dropped out of the race or failed to qualify for today’s debate.
NBC’s Lester Holt and Kristen Welker, host of Meet the Press, will be moderating Wednesday’s debate alongside Salem Radio Network host Hugh Hewitt.
Trump is once again skipping Wednesday’s debate and will instead hold a campaign rally in Hialeah, Florida.
