Here are the candidates who have secured a spot at second Republican presidential debate

The second Republican presidential primary debate of the 2024 election cycle is nearly two weeks away, and six candidates, as of now, have secured a spot on the stage.

The debate, which will be hosted by Fox Business and Univision, is slated to take place on Sept. 27 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET in Simi Valley, California.

Unlike the requirements outlined by the Republican National Committee (RNC) to participate in last month’s debate, there are stronger thresholds in place that Republican candidates are required to meet before they can earn a spot on the stage in California.

To participate in the second debate, each candidate must have a minimum of 50,000 unique donors to their campaign or exploratory committee, including 200 donors in 20 or more states. The candidates must also reach 3% support in two national polls or reach 3% in one national poll and 3% in two polls conducted in different early nominating states like Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada or South Carolina.

FOX News Media was tapped to host the first two debates of the 2024 election cycle. Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum co-moderated FOX News Media’s “Democracy 24: FOX News Republican Primary Debate” last month. The debate drew a staggering 12.8 million total viewers, making it the most-watched non-sporting event cable telecast of the year so far.
