Fox News Big Deal Announcement All GOP Candidates Will Get a Chance To Debate August 6th

Fox News just made a huge announcement which changes everything. 
Fox announced that in addition to a 9 p.m. debate on August 6, the candidates with lower polling numbers will debate together at 5 p.m. Eastern the same day.
The earlier debate will last an hour, with the prime time debate extending to two hours.
That means, no matter who you support, your candidate will have his or her voice heard by millions!
Fox News is opening its 5 p.m. debate to all the announced Republican candidates who fail to make the cut for the Aug. 6 prime-time event, removing a requirement that participants reach at least 1 percent in polling.
The change amounts to an insurance policy for candidates who were in danger of being disqualified from the vital first debate based on low polls – Carly Fiorina, former New York Gov. George Pataki and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
The announcement by Michael Clemente, Fox News Executive Vice President, News, means that all 16 announced candidates will qualify for Cleveland — either the 5 p.m. undercard, or the 9 p.m. main event.
The previous rule set by Fox was the candidates had to have at least 1% in the tracking poll.
According to RCP, the prime time debaters will likely be Donald Trump, former Gov. Jeb Bush (Fla.), Gov. Scott Walker (Wis.), Sen. Rubio (Fla.), former Gov. Mike Huckabee (Ark.), Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), Gov. Chris Christie (N.J.), and Gov. John Kasich (Ohio). Source
