More details are coming out about tonightâ€™s Republican debate. The stage arrangements of the GOP debate have been made clear and a report in the AJC says that billionaire businessman Donald Trump is all set to stand center-stage for the debate.
The report goes to add that next to him will be Carson who is increasingly giving him tougher fight than many had imagined.
It is yet to see if he will win tonightâ€™s debate and leave Donald Trump gasping for some sort of air. The same report adds that to real estate czarâ€™s right will be Rubio, Bush, Huckabee and Kasich. On the other hand Presidential hopeful on Carson’s left will be Fiorina, Cruz, Christie and Paul. So this means that Jeb Bush is already being written off by not giving him center stage. He is being clubbed with those people who donâ€™t seem to have any real chance now.
So the people who are going to be part of the debate will include Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Rand Paul will be part of the debate. It will start at 7 p.m. Central and will last two hours.
CNBC report said that â€œThe other grouping will include candidates who meet the minimum threshold of one percent in any one of the specified group of national polls.â€ Those candidates, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, and Lindsey Graham, will take the stage at 5 p.m. Central.
It has been made clear now by the television channel that Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick and John Harwood will moderate the debate, which will focus on jobs, taxes and the deficit; the health of the economy, and “your financial freedom.”
In the meantime it has been confirmed that the debate will air live on CNBC and be available to all CNBC digital customers who authenticate via TV Everywhere on CNBC.com, mobile apps and Apple TV as well as to CNBC PRO subscribers. It will start at 7 p.m. Central and will last two hours.
