Tyler Perry Studios Named the Site of Next Democratic Presidential Debate

The recently opened Tyler Perry Studios will be the site of the next Democratic presidential debate, announced on Nov. 4.

The studios are located in Atlanta, Georgia.

The debate is slated to take place on Nov. 20.

Negotiations for the debate taking place in Atlanta started earlier this year, as Democratic officials hope to flip some seats and possibly the whole state blue.

“Georgia represents the future of the Democratic Party,” Nikema Williams, chairwoman of the state party, previously told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We would love to see national candidates debate the issues in front of the Georgia voters who will take us to victory next year.”

Tyler Perry, known for producing a number of successful movies, is a longtime Democratic contributor. He donated $30,400 to the Democratic National Committee in 2009, $30,800 to the committee in 2012, and $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012 that same year.

Among his other contributions to Democrats, Perry gave over $10,000 to Sen. David Nunn (D-Ga.), according to federal election records.

Perry has also indicated support for Republican President Donald Trump; hes donated nearly $1,000 to the Republican National Committee or the Trump Make America Great Again Committee.
