The first prime time GOP Presidential debate will occur tonight at 9p.m. Eastern time on Fox News.
The line-up of the GOP debate will include the top ten candidates based on an average of 5 recent polls including: former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), Sen. Rand Paul (KY), Gov. Chris Christie (NJ), Gov. John Kasich (OH) and Donald Trump.
The debate will be the candidate’s first time squaring off face-to-face and will give the established candidates a chance to take a political swing at the brash Donald Trump who has seemed to gain traction within the party even with the controversy that has been a hallmark of his candidacy so far. It remains to be sees whether Trump will be his normal outspoken and unapologetic self or if he will be more reserved in his first debate.
The debate will be held at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH, will be 2 hours long and will be moderated by three Fox News anchors: Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly.
