GOP to host second presidential debate in California

The GOP will hold its second presidential primary debate of the year at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., the chair of the Republican National Committee announced Thursday.

POLITICO reported earlier Thursday that RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel would make the announcement during a Thursday evening speech at the library, according to a person familiar with the remarks. Her speech was focused on the future for the party heading toward the 2024 election.

Republicans have previously announced that their first debate will be held in Milwaukee in August, and that it would air on Fox News. McDaniel was not expected to specify when the second debate would be set for, or which outlet would air it.
