HOLLYWOOD (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Republican Party of Florida will host a series of primary debates at the 2022 Sunshine Summit on July 23, 2022. 

Qualified Republican candidates in the 4th, 7th, 13th and 15th Congressional Districts are invited to the debates at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. 

To qualify each candidate has two options. They must poll at 5% or greater in the Republican Party of Florida Poll that will be conducted by July 13th, or the candidate needs to have raised and publicly reported at least $100,000 in monetary contributions by July 13th. 

Gov. Ron DeSantis said Mark Levin will moderate two of the debates. The other moderators will be announced at another date. DeSantis said people get bored just hearing people giving “platitudes” and speeches. 

“We want to make sure that we’re doing things that I think are going to be really, really informative and exciting for folks,” DeSantis said. “This will be a great opportunity for the candidates to be able to go and talk about their visions and in contrast with their competitors.”

Debate rules will be released after July 13th, which is the debate qualifying deadline. 

On top of the debates, the Sunshine Summit will include guest speakers, panel discussions, and other programming featuring top Florida Republican officials and conservative voices.
