    Fox News announces candidate line-up for prime-time debate

    It's debate time in the United States. The Republican debates begin this evening.

    Fox News announces candidate line-up for prime-time debate

    Published August 05, 2015
    FoxNews.com

    Fox News has announced the line-up for the prime-time Republican presidential debate this Thursday, and here's who qualified:

    Real estate magnate Donald Trump; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    The roster of 10 candidates was determined based on an average of the five most recent national polls. Trump as expected made the cut, securing the top slot. Right behind him were Bush and Walker, who each have posted strong numbers in recent surveys.

    The drama, rather, was at the edge of the top 10. Christie and Kasich, who were hovering by that edge in recent polling, were able to qualify.

    Kasich, who leads the state where the debate is being held, said in a statement, "As governor, I am glad to welcome my fellow debate participants to our great state and I look forward to discussing the issues facing our country with them on Thursday."

    But former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and several others will not be on the prime-time, 9 p.m. ET stage. The seven who did not make the top 10 will be invited to a separate 5 p.m. ET debate. Aside from Perry and Santorum, this includes Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal; former HP head Carly Fiorina; South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham; former New York Gov. George Pataki; and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.

    More on this...

    No matter where you stand politically, I think this will be the best reality tv available tonight in the U.S.A..

    Hillary, Bill, and Huma are the ones that really need to answer some questions, imo. Maybe the FBI will convince them.

    I am an Independent, meaning I try to take everyone seriously, since each candidate seriously wants to become president. In my opinion it is important to listen to what they say, what they do no say, read between the lines and make my own intepretation. That doesn't mean I am always correct in my assessment, only that I try my best to understand. This is just for the debates. I also read and listen to whatever I can.

    I have my own concerns, like most people, that I will be listening for a discussion on.

    When the Democratic dates are announced I intend to announce them here also.

    It should be a lot of fun, just to hear Mr. Trump espouse his views. I actually admire his penchant for speaking his mind, regardless of the fallout, but he is way too egotistical for my taste, although it may be what this country needs to counter-act all the wishy-washy PC-ness of the last 7 years.

    Who do you think spoke the most?

    Yep, you're right!

    Didn't get to watch much of the debates. I guess I can read more about them in the coming days. My two favorite (hmmm-doesn't pass spell check but it is spelled correctly) candidates were not in the top ten, no surprise there. In my opinion, the reason Donald leads in the polls expresses a great amount of dissatisfaction with the other mainstream candidates.

    Also, he provides entertainment. It will be interesting to watch how this continues, or not.

    Mr. A, don't forget that you can watch the videos online at Fox.
