Mark Levin will moderate the debates between two Florida Republican congressional candidates at the 2022 Sunshine Summit. The Republican Party of Florida plans to host four such discussions as the midterms rapidly approach and Republicans hope to take back control of the House in November.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), made the announcement Monday at a Callahan press conference. Qualified candidates from congressional districts 4, 7, 13, and 15 will participate in the four debates. The 13th district will include the Republicans competing to fill Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL’s) seat. Crist hopes that DeSantis will challenge him in this year’s gubernatorial race.
The debates will be held at Hollywood’s Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Mark Levin, conservative talker, author, Life, Liberty & Levin host, will moderate two of the debates.
“So, as part of the Sunshine State Summit, we are, The Republican Party… They’re going to be sending out invitations to the qualified candidates for those races. DeSantis stated during the press conference that they would be having debates at the Sunshine Summit.
“There will be four debates. He said that he had Mark Levin for the first two debates.
“And then, we’ll have, the two other we’ll work with and we’ll announce the moderators. It just gives the chance for credible candidates to be able it. To qualify, you will need to meet a certain threshold. This threshold is very achievable. He said that it was very, very possible.
The RPOF requires that a candidate poll at least 5 percent in an RPOF poll of each primary race by July 13, 2022, or raise and report publicly “at minimum $100,000 in monetary contributions” by July 13, 2022.
But I believe it’ll turn out to be something worthwhile. “You know, you do these summits. But to have just a day’s worth a bunch people giving platitudes or these speeches — I think that the people get bored by it,” said the governor.
“And so, we want to ensure that we’re doing things I believe are really, really informative. He said that this will provide candidates with a unique opportunity to talk about their visions, and compare them to their competitors. Stay tuned for more information.
The RPOF describes the Sunshine Summit as having a “robust agenda” of guest speakers, panel discussions and other programming that features top Florida Republican officials and conservative voices.
