Why did the governors of Florida and California have a TV debate? What was the point of that.
A reasonable answer is the 2028 elections. There is no way DeSantis has a snowball's chance in hell in 2024. 
From Time (and there are many others):
Meanwhile, Newsom, who, like DeSantis, will be out of a job come January 2027, has been eager to broaden his political profile ahead of a possible presidential bid in 2028
From BBC:
One way or another, the 2028 Democratic nomination fight is going to be an open contest, and Mr Newsom could use this debate - along with other spotlight-grabbing opportunities - to burnish his credentials as a party standard-bearer.
The Washington Post:
Gavin Newsom 2028? His early moves offer a potential glimpse.
His effort to raise his national profile has carried risks and drawn mixed reviews from voters at home

And one (Newsom) saw an opportunity to show what IS wrong with Republicans' dysfunctional government and how to change course.  ;)

Some sanity prevailed:
House votes to expel indicted Rep. George Santos from Congress
The New York Republican is now just the third lawmaker since the Civil War to be expelled from the House of Representatives.

Next, the orange one in an orange jumpsuit, please.

Have you been asleep the last couple of decades, but particularly the last 2-3 years? One saw an opportunity to show what's wrong with this government and how to change course, the other to defend the abysmal record of the current $%@* in chief.

I guess what I was getting at is why governors from two different states feel the need to debate each other at all. If they want to comment on the current political situation, they have ample opportunity to do so.

The later response from "digitaldog" suggests that this a long-term political marketing. I can see that as motivation, but it doesn't seem to me to be a good motivation. If I were living in either state, I'd be wondering why my guy isn't at work instead of doing TV shows. Don't they have enough work to do? And who is going to remember this debate in 2028 (or even 2024)? Unless they're both running and facing each other at that time, it seems like a pointless exercise.

Did anyone watch? What were the ratings like?

Just seems like BS to me. Years ago when I lived in Toronto, city council voted to make Toronto a nuclear-free zone. Empty rhetoric, it's not like anyone was proposing building either nuclear reactors or weapons in the city. Presumably, hospitals got to keep their nuclear medicine departments. I never heard of radiation patients being bussed outside city limits.

Neither can be reelected as Gov again, so, one could assume (although I hate doing so) that they don't care.
One could assume (although I hate doing so) and based on a lot of reporting, the two do care about a national audience for 2028.
And yes, much of it is BS.

I've been watching a few of the youtube video interviews with Andy Borowitz about the nearly two-generation long dumbing down of US politics and politicians. This non-debate fits in that mold, I guess. That's probably unfair since I didn't watch it, nor did I even read anything about it past the headline and first paragraph. The thought of it occurring at all is what puzzled me, but no matter. Lots of things confuse me about US politics. For example, why do people threaten to shut down the government every few months? Seems pretty nutty to me.

Another feckless attempt at being taken seriously here.
Time to run along Frans to Truth Social; they need more users.

The new history: they want to put the church back in charge of everything, government, media, schools, all of society. Some cults can be really ambitious. OTOH, they did just recently put their boy into the house speaker job.

Once again, in that story, a link is made between Christian fundamentalist beliefs and guns.

Thanks for your comment. Do you not also find that the fraudulent election claims are getting a bit long in the tooth? They would be easy as pie to ignore except that Trump still seems to be a front runner in the next election. Does that also bother you?
