California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have finally set a date for their long-talked-about debate on Fox News—with the conservative network's Sean Hannity as its moderator.
The red vs. blue state debate will run on Nov. 30 on Fox News. The 90-minute debate will be filmed in Georgia and will air on Hannity's show at 6 p.m. PST.
Republican presidential candidate DeSantis and Newsom have been publicly sparring for months—with Newsom slamming DeSantis as a "small pathetic man" after two planes of migrants were sent to Sacramento in June. California's attorney general and Newsom blamed DeSantis and Florida officials for the act.
Weeks later, DeSantis popped on a San Francisco street corner, slamming both California's and the city's political leadership for filthy streets and perceived crime issues.
This will mark the first time the two prominent governors will face off in a debate.
"I’m looking forward to providing viewers with an informative debate about the everyday issues and governing philosophies that impact the lives of every American," Hannity said.
