BREAKING: Fox News Announces Which GOP Hopefuls Made the Cut For First Debate

So who’s in and who’s out? Finally, the results we’ve all been waiting for.

Fox News has just announced that the following GOP hopefuls have qualified for the primetime debate:


See the 10 Republicans Who Qualified for the @FoxNews Primetime Debate @BretBaier @megynkelly

— FoxNewsInsider (@FoxNewsInsider) August 4, 2015

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

That means that the seven candidates who will be sitting at the proverbial kids table, i.e., those who will be invited to appear in the 5pm debate, are: Former Gov. Rick Perry, Gov. Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, former Sen. Rick Santorum, Sen. Lindsey Graham, former Gov. George Pataki, and former Gov. Jim Gilmore.

According to, “The roster of 10 candidates was determined based on an average of the five most recent national polls,” a necessary measure given how large the field of Republican hopefuls is.


"Our field is the biggest and most diverse of any party in history and I am glad to see that every one of those extremely qualified candidates will have the opportunity to participate on Thursday evening. Republicans across the country will be able to choose which candidate has earned their support after hearing them talk through the issues,” RNC Chair Reince Priebus said in a statement reacting to the news.

"Democrats will have to take Hillary Clinton's word that she deserves to be their nominee. While the RNC is moving forward with our sanctioned debate schedule, the DNC has yet to even announce when they will put her onstage."
