Just days before the key Florida primary, CNN will host a Republican presidential debate in the the state, on March 10. CNN announced Florida as the location for the debate Wednesday afternoon. “If debates are needed in March we look forward to CNN hosting the debate in Florida,” said Sean Spicer, chief strategist and communications director of the Republican National Committee.”

The RNC previously named CNN as the host of two Republican primary debates in 2015, as well as one in March 2016 to be held in the event the party has not yet selected a nominee. With a big field of candidates, it’s believed the campaign may be undecided by March.

CNN has not yet said where in Florida the debate will be held, or the format for the debate.
