Francis Suarez, the mayor of Miami and a rising Republican presidential candidate, plans to use the upcoming debate to highlight his special appeal and set himself apart from more well-known rivals.

Francis Suarez: Who is he?

Francis Suarez, the mayor of Miami, has established himself as an intriguing candidate in the 2024 Republican presidential race by presenting himself as a new face in politics. The only Hispanic candidate among the nine Republican candidates who have qualified for the upcoming presidential debate in Milwaukee is 45-year-old Suarez. Although he is less well-known than the other candidates, he sees this as an opportunity to share his personality and vision with a large audience that is expected to number in the tens of millions of viewers.

Suarez thinks that in a field where policy agreements are common, his capacity for interpersonal interaction will set him apart. “It has character and dynamism. In an interview with The Associated Press, he emphasized that it was about having the capacity to connect. He believes he can play a significant role in connecting with Hispanic and younger voters, two crucial demographics for the Republican Party’s outreach efforts, as the mayor of Miami, a city with a diverse and vibrant population.

Candidates must meet a number of requirements set forth by the Republican National Committee in order to participate in the debates, including scoring at least 1% in three credible national polls, or a combination of national and early-state polls. Candidates must also raise a minimum of 40,000 donors, 200 of whom must come from 20 or more different states. Suarez recently fulfilled the polling requirement after earlier in the month meeting the donor threshold.

Suarez’s approach to his campaign has been distinguished by a willingness to discuss the issues with his rivals. He has avoided direct criticism of former President Donald Trump in favor of positioning himself as a vocal opponent of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, another candidate in the race. Suarez has stated that he intends to continue using a similar approach during the debate, concentrating on the topics and his vision rather than making personal attacks.

Former President Trump, who has indicated he will not attend the debate, might not be present. Given the disparity in the number of applicants, Suarez sees this as a chance to stand out. “You’re talking about nine versus eight, and of course, it’s the person who’s No. 1 in the polls,” he observed. He thinks that Trump’s absence might give him a special opportunity to shine.

All eyes will be on Francis Suarez as the debate draws near as he tries to make the most of this opportunity to present a convincing case for his candidacy and connect with viewers across the country.
