Hot Debate Guy -- Republican Candidates Scramble for His Support

EXCLUSIVE

Two Republican presidential candidates have reached out to Hot Debate Guy, trying to get a meeting with him ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Carly Fiorina and John Kasich have both contacted Greg Caruso, trying to get him on board. And we're told they want more than his support ... they want his participation, and for several reasons.

The 24-year-old got as much attention as them during the debate, and he connects with young Republicans. The other major reason ... Greg's dad, Rick Caruso, is a billionaire who actively supports Republican candidates.  

Our sources say Greg hasn't decided whether he'll take the meetings.

Hot Debate Guy's life has been crazy. He returned home from NYC Friday night to find girls camped out on his front lawn. He now has security.

The principles of becoming famous are the same as buying houses ... location, location, location.
