Florida debate gets venue

(CNN) - A GOP candidates' debate slated just days ahead of Florida's primary has found a home: the University of North Florida in Jacksonville.

CNN is co-sponsoring the January 26 event with the Republican Party of Florida and the Hispanic Leadership Network. Florida voters will head to the polls January 31.

In announcing the venue, Lenny Curry, the chairman of the RPOF, said the site underscored the importance of the region.

"This is a great event for Jacksonville and for UNF," Curry said. "This venue will highlight how important Jacksonville and the First Coast region are to Florida and the nation by hosting a debate that includes our next president."

In addition to the debate site in Jacksonville, CNN will host a remote location in Miami, kicking off the Hispanic Leadership Network's "Inspiring Action" conference.

    If an Hispanic person in Florida vote in the general election for a republican, all you need to do is just get in your boat and head cross the ocean. If not, the republican president will do it for you.
