Salem To Distribute California Gov. Debate


Candidates competing to replace Gavin Newsom as Governor of California will face off in a televised debate at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda on August 4the from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Hugh Hewitt is the moderator.

John Cox, Kevin Faulconer, Kevin Kiley and Doug Ose will take the stage in a debate that will be broadcast live by Fox 11 Los Angeles.

Hugh Hewitt, president of the Richard Nixon Foundation, will moderate the debate along with panelists Christine Devine and Elex Michaelson of Fox 11 News and former U.S. National Security Adviser Ambassador Robert C. O’Brien.

Governor Gavin Newsom was invited to participate but did not respond to the invitation. Candidate Caitlyn Jenner was invited to participate but is unable to attend due to a prior commitment. Candidate Larry Elder’s campaign cleared the date but subsequently identified a conflict. The invitation to all three remains open and organizers are hopeful one or more will make the debate which is being aired on Fox 11 Los Angeles, KTVU Fox 2 San Francisco, other Fox TV affiliates statewide, and on the Salem Radio Network and other radio stations.


  1. I believe it was Larry Elder (who is NOT participating), who described this far-right wing event as a “circular firing squad”. Caitlyn Jenner is also not joining in, allegedly due to being “busy” with some showbiz project in Australia. Not saying Caitlyn’s any intellectual giant, but the remaining group leaves the total IQ behind the table at somewhere around 40, if the studio A/C’s adjusted to the correct temperature. This bogus far-right wing neo-fascist clown show would be entertaining, perhaps, if it were just part of a bad movie. Trouble is, some 70 million idiots want this same clown show to run our states and our country.
