The Republican Party of Florida has set a location for the GOP debate that will take place in Jacksonville on January 26, just five days before the Florida primary.
The CNN/RPOF sponsored debate will be held at the University of North Florida.
"The audience make-up will be a good cross section of registered Republicans, the rank-and-file folks that go out and vote, and a representative sample of who you would see voting in a Republican primary. And they'll be not only from Jacksonville but from all over the state," says Republican Party of Florida chair Lenny Curry.
Curry says a theme has not been decided upon yet, since the political landscape is always changing.
"As we get closer we'll have some more insight as to what the discussion will center around."
Curry wouldn't say specifically which candidates would be in attendance, but hinted that, barring any last minute dropout, all the candidates would be present for the debate.
"This will be an event that will be in the final moments of voters making their decision for our primary on the 31st. This is a big deal. This will be THE debate of the year for Florida," Curry said.
