What time is the Republican debate tonight? who is in, who is out, start time, schedule, Channel, how to watch live

Many people had predicted that Republican presidential campaign will be very tough for the party given the high number of aspirants for White House and the internal contradictions within the party. Now these contradictions are coming to the fore.

While the GOP establishment remains completely opposed to Donald Trump and fears his surging numbers, it also remains skeptical of his main challenger Ted Cruz who seems to be far more dangerous for the GOP establishment than even Trump.

In the meantime the whole Republican debate itinerary has been thrown into turmoil as Donald Trump has said he will not take part in the Republican debate tonight.

Donald-TrumpIn the eye of scathing criticism from his own party top brass and his competitors Trump and aides defended his boycott, while other Republicans mocked the GOP front-runner for looking weak. Late Wednesday, the Trump campaign announced a “Special Event to Benefit Veterans Organizations” to be held at Drake University in Des Moines — at the same time as Thursday’s Des Moines debate.

In the meantime his competitors are tearing into him with their tough attack. They don’t want to lose this godsend opportunity to attack him and get away easily. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, locked in a tight battle with Trump ahead of Monday’s caucuses in Iowa, responded to the boycott by challenging the businessman to a one-on-one debate, creating a website called “Ducking Donald,” and selling hats saying “Make Trump Debate Again.” “Show up for the job interview if you’d actually like the job,” Cruz told supporters.

Trump, who doesn’t take anything sitting down responded in his own style. In a tweet he responded on Twitter saying “Even though I beat him in the first six debates, especially the last one, Ted Cruz wants to debate me again. Can we do it in Canada?” Trump has question the Canadian-born Donald Cruz’s eligibility for the presidency.

When it comes to the debate format, like all the previous debates it will be divided in undercard and the main debates. The undercard debate will begin at 6 p.m. CST and last for an hour. The main debate will begin at 8 p.m. CST and last for two hours. The main debate will include Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio; retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; Ohio Gov. John Kasich; and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. On the other hand the contenders who will be participating in the undercard debate include former HP CEO Carly Fiorina; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum; and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.

The debate will be hosted by Fox News. Anyone with an Internet connection will be able to watch online through Fox News’ website. You can also watch it on FOX News Radio, FOX News Mobile and the FOX News Go app. The main debate is going to broadcast live on Thursday, January 28 at 9 PM ET. It is going to be broadcast from Iowa.
