Miami, Oct 20 (EFE).- Former President Donald Trump will hold a campaign event in Hialeah, Florida at almost the same time that the third debate of the Republican presidential primaries will take place in Miami, which he will not attend as he did in the previous two.
The campaign of the Republican, who widely leads polls despite the court cases he faces, said the former president would hold a rally at 7pm on Nov. 8 at the Ted Hendricks Stadium in Hialeah, a city with a large population of Cuban origin and Miami residents.
An hour later, the other presidential candidates who qualify for the third debate, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who remains second in the polls, will debate their proposals in Miami, at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
South Florida, with a majority Hispanic population, will host both electoral events, which will be held in locations about 18 kilometers apart.
To qualify, candidates must reach at least 4 percent in two national polls, or 4 percent in one national poll and 4 percent in polls from two different states with early primaries to qualify.
Trump, who considers it unnecessary to attend the debates due to the great advantage he has over the rest of the candidates, has reduced attention to the debates with his simultaneous events.
During the first debate in August, the Trump campaign aired a pre-recorded interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, and during the second, in September, he was at a rally in Detroit, Michigan, at the same time.
Other candidates are South Carolina Senator Tim Scott; former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie; North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum; businessman Vivek Ramaswamy; former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence and former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson.
The third debate is carried out by the NBC channel, Salem Radio Network, the Republican Jewish Coalition and the Rumble platform as “partners,” according to the Republican National Committee. EFE
