It’ll be live from Alpharetta, Ga., outside Atlanta on Nov. 30. It’ll start at 6 p.m. Pacific time and be 90 minutes long. It’ll be moderated by Sean Hannity, without a studio audience.
Hannity will then host a 30-minute post-debate analysis of what Fox is promoting as “DeSantis vs. Newsom: The Great Red vs. Blue State Debate.”
The two governors aren’t waiting for the debate to continue trolling each other.
In a fundraising video last week for his presidential campaign, DeSantis called California “the petri dish for American leftism” and said it would “cause this country to collapse,” while he said Florida is the “model for revival, a model based on freedom.”
Newsom hit back with a TV ad that started airing in Florida on Sunday accusing DeSantis of making criminals of women seeking an abortion by signing a ban after six weeks of pregnancy. The ad, narrated by Newsom, shows a “Wanted” poster with images of women and physicians and says “by order” of DeSantis they could be arrested and put in prison for five years: “That’s not freedom. That’s Ron DeSantis’s Florida.”
