Who made the cut for Thursday's FOX GOP debate?


 

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has made the cut for Thursday night's main Republican presidential debate.

Fox News announced the lineup just a few minutes ago.

The candidates participating in the 9 p.m. debate are:

  • Donald Trump
  • Ted Cruz
  • Marco Rubio
  • Ben Carson
  • Jeb Bush
  • Chris Christie
  • John Kasich
  • Rand Paul.

There will also be an earlier debate at 7 p.m. with Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina and Jim Gilmore.

Trump has threatened to not take part in the debate if Fox News host Megyn Kelly is the moderator. Kelly and Trump clashed at the first GOP debate back in August.

The debates in Des Moines are the last before Monday's Iowa Caucuses, the first election of the 2016 presidential race.

You can listen to special coverage of the debates starting at 7 p.m. Thursday on AM 1290 and News 95.7 WHIO. In addition to carrying both debates, there will also be guests and analysis through 2 a.m. Friday.

You can stream the debates live at WHIO.com
