The Republican National Committee (RNC) has announced the date and location of the fourth GOP presidential debate, as well as the criteria each of the candidates must meet to qualify.
In a Friday press release the RNC revealed the debate would be held Wednesday, Dec. 6 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but did not specify a venue.
According to the release, candidates will need to be polling “at least 6% in two national polls, or 6% in one national poll and 6% in one early state poll from two separate ‘carve out’ states,” meaning Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada or South Carolina. The polls must be ones recognized by the RNC.
The news comes just days ahead of the third Republican presidential debate, which will be hosted by NBC News, Salem Radio Network, the Republican Jewish Coalition, and Rumble, and held at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County in Miami, Florida.
