Republicans Get Creative In Contest For Main Debate Stage
Even after Fox News loosened attendance, there are still only 10 spots on the prime-time broadcast for the first Republican presidential debate.By Eugene Daniels | July 28, 2015
We're days away from the first Republican presidential debate, and while a recent rule change by Fox News means all the candidates will be included, there's a 10-person cutoff on the main event, leaving some scrambling for a spot on stage.
If you take a look at the latest five polls, eight candidates look like they have spots locked down. But ninth and 10th place are still up for grabs.
Senator Lindsey Graham, who likely won't make it to the main stage, has said a cutoff this early in the campaign makes the contest all about name recognition.
