First Republican Party debate: Time and how to watch on TV and stream online

Tonight the first Republican debate will take place. What time does it start and who will be involved?

Estados UnidosUpdate:
Will viewers get desired high-profile matchups in GOP debates?

This Wednesday, 23 August, the first Republican debate of the 2024 presidential primaries will take place. According to official information from the Republican National Committee, only eight candidates from the party will face off against each other; Donald Trump won’t be attending.

Trump says there is no point in attending thanks to voters already knowing him, besides, he is so far ahead of the others in polling. Instead, Trump recorded an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, which will be airing simultaneously with the debate.

Who will participate in the primary debate?

The eight Republicans who qualified for the primary debate are:

  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis
  • Former Vice President Mike Pence
  • North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum
  • Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
  • Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
  • Former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson
  • Businessman Vivek Ramaswamy
  • Senator from South Carolina, Tim Scott

The first Republican Party primary debate will take place tonight, Wednesday, August 23, at 9:00 p.m. ET, and will run for two hours, which means that the event will end at 11:00 p.m. ET.
