Univisión debate/forum (debatoforum?)

There will indeed be a Spanish-language “forum” for Democratic candidates on Univisión. They changed the name to a “forum” so that Hillary Clinton could stick to her promise of only participating in six “debates.” That is fine, as they have been more like game shows than debates anyway.

They have the full slate of Democrats for September 9, and plan a Republican one on September 16 as well, though I have seen only McCain accepting. As English-only proposals are currently hot for a number of Republican candidates, it is difficult to see them participating.

Given the location, one part of the forum will likely be a contest to be the most anti-Castro. Just count how many times the word “tough” or a variant is used.
