Fox News Channel will host its fourth Republican presidential primary debate–and the 13th overall–one week from tonight in Salt Lake City.
The two-hour debate at the Salt Palace Convention Center will be moderated by Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace.
Following last week’s GOP debate on CNN, front-runner Donald Trump said he would be OK with two more debates. The following day, he didn’t appear to be as committed. It’s possible the GOP race will be down to three or even two candidates by next week, depending on what happens in tomorrow’s big primary contests in Ohio and Florida.
Here’s the 2016 debate ranker, which includes Nielsen viewership data, along with concurrent livestreaming information provided by the networks.
