Despite calls from GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump to put a stop to further primary debates, Fox News announced Monday that it will hostanother debate on March 21st in Salt Lake City.
The debate was scheduled last month, according to CNN, but it was only announced on Monday that Fox would be holding its fourth Republican debate this election cycle. Fox News hosts Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace are expected to moderate.
It’s unclear at this point which candidates plan to attend the debate. Trump recently told reporters that he’s “done with debates,” and he has skipped one Fox News debate in the past.
“I think we’ve had enough debates,” Trump said on Friday. “I mean, how
many times do you have to give the same answer to the same question?”
With the contests in Ohio and Florida coming up this week, it’s possible that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) may leave the race if they don’t secure wins.
The two-hour debate is expected to be broadcast live from the Salt Palace Convention Center at 9 p.m. EST. It’s also the first presidential debate ever to be held in Utah.
