What time is the Republican debate on January 28, Fox News teams with Google, YouTube: Schedule, channel

The Republican presidential debate No. 2 in January 2016 is going to be stormy. There is no denying the fact. If the last debate was ferocious, it will still be far more ferocious.

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump had fought bitterly in their last encounter and their fight was not really settled. And they will fight far more bitterly than in the last encounter earlier this month.

In the meantime reports suggest that Fox News Channel has roped in Google and the search giant’s subsidiary Youtube to present the next GOP debate. The two-hour debate at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, the candidates’ final meeting before the Feb. 1 lead-off caucuses in the Hawkeye State, will be broadcast from 9-11 p.m. ET.

Donald-TrumpWhile Donald Trump remains the favorite to bag the Republican nomination till now, Ted Cruz is catching up with him really very fast.

Both are trying to win over the Republican support base across the US. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who has highlighted what he calls rival Donald Trump’s “New York values” and labeled him a liberal masquerading as a conservative, is now trying to tag Trump as the favorite of the party elite with less than two weeks until the first nominating contest, in Iowa on Feb. 1.

While speaking to the media in New Hampshire this past week Cruz said, “We’re seeing the Washington establishment abandoning Marco Rubio and unifying behind Donald Trump…And we’re seeing conservatives coming together and unifying behind our campaign. And if conservatives unite, we win.”

On the other hand Trump dismissed Cruz’s assertions. “He’s a nervous wreck. He’s had his moment and he blew it,” Trump said to roars and applause from supporters inside a hotel ballroom.

In the meantime as far as the next debate is concerned, Fox News will use real-time Google trends and data to determine questions for the candidates. In addition, several YouTube stars (yet to be named) will be offered the chance to pose questions via videos. The debate will be moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier, “The Kelly File” anchor Megyn Kelly — the target of Donald Trump’s ire during the August GOP debate — and “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
