Hannity to moderate DeSantis vs. Newsom debate in November, Fox News Media announces

Conservative commentator Sean Hannity of the Fox News Channel is slated to moderate a debate between California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to Fox News Media, which announced that a 90-minute debate will be held in Georgia on November 30.

"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, according to a press release.

Both of the governors had previously expressed a willingness to debate each other.

DeSantis, who was decisively re-elected to a second term by Sunshine State voters in 2022, is currently running in the GOP presidential primary, though polls indicate that former President Donald Trump maintains a massive lead in the contest.

"Decline is a choice and success is attainable. As President, I will lead America's revival. I look forward to the opportunity to debate Gavin Newsom over our very different visions for the future of our country," DeSantis tweeted.

Newsom survived a gubernatorial recall election in 2021 and later went on to win a decisive re-election victory in 2022.

The Golden State governor has been outspoken in supporting President Joe Biden. The New York Times has previously reported that Newsom said Democrats should rally around the incumbent president. "The train has left the station," Newsom said, according to the outlet. "We're all in. Stop talking. He's not going anywhere. It's time for all of us to get on the train and buck up."

Leftist Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks tweeted earlier this month that "California is *without question* a s*** show under Newsom. But I guess propping up proven failures is what the Democratic party excels at these days."
