This Wednesday is the second Republican debate in California. Know the schedule, how to watch, and who will be involved.
This Wednesday night, September 27, the second Republican debate for the 2024 presidential elections will take place at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley, California.

Unlike the previous debate, this time, only seven candidates met the requirements to participate in the event.
How and where to watch the second debate
The second Republican debate is presented by Fox News and Univisión, so both networks will broadcast the event completely live through their respective television channels. The transmission on both television stations will begin with a one-hour preview at 8:00 p.m. ET.
If you do not have access to television or simply prefer streaming, you can follow the second Republican debate online, through the Rumble platform, official partner of the Republican Committee.
Who will participate in the debate?
According to official information from the Republican National Committee (RNC), the seven candidates who are attending are the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis; former Vice President Mike Pence; North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum; former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie; the former governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley; businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and South Carolina senator Tim Scott; leaving former Arkansas governor, Asa Hutchinson, out of the event.
Trump meets the requirements but will not attend
Despite meeting all the necessary requirements, former President Trump will not participate in the debates. A month ago, the Republican favorite made it clear that he would not participate in the primary debates.
Instead of being in California, Trump will head to Michigan to address striking autoworkers in the Detroit area.
