It’s Official! Alabama to Host its First Ever Presidential Debate

It’s official. Alabama will host its first ever Presidential Debate on Wednesday, December 6 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

“I am thrilled the fourth Republican presidential debate has been finalized, and that it will be in the Yellowhammer State. This is an amazing opportunity for the state of Alabama, as well as primary voters across the country. Alabama is one of the strongest Republican states in the nation, and I think it’s fitting that we host a primary debate as candidates fight for the support of conservative voters,” said ALGOP Chairman John Wahl.

“Tuscaloosa will be a great host city, and I look forward to working with student groups and young conservatives during this process. Reaching out to young voters is one of my targets as the youngest Republican State Party Chairman in the country, and this debate will give us a unique opportunity for collage outreach,” he continued.

The debate will be moderated by SiriusXM’s Megyn Kelly, NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas, and the Washington Free Beacon’s Eliana Johnson.

“I want to thank the Debate Committee and RNC leadership for making this happen. This debate has been in the works for months, and I am proud to have played a small part in ensuring Alabama has the opportunity to host its first ever official televised presidential debate. Raising Alabama’s political profile is important to me as Chairman, and I think this debate will continue the work the ALGOP has been doing in this area,” said Chairman Wahl.

Details about the venue will be released in the coming days.

Chairman Wahl is available for interviews about the debate. Please contact ALGOP Communications Director Jeannie Negrón Burniston to schedule.
