CBS Announces Candidates for Saturday’s GOP Debate

By Mark Joyella 

CBS News has announced the candidates who have qualified for the network’s Saturday night Republican presidential debate in South Carolina.

Donald Trump will again take center stage, with Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, and John Kasich filling out the stage on either side.

Carson, who did not place in either Iowa and New Hampshire, qualified due to top-five status in recent polls. Carly Fiorina and Chris Christie might not have qualified, but both have suspended their campaigns.
