Four of the five remaining Republican presidential candidates will meet for the 11th GOP debate following Super Tuesday on Thursday 3 March. Long-shot candidate, Ben Carson, announced on Wednesday (2 March) that he will not participate in the debate and suggested that he would be ending his campaign.
The debate, hosted by Fox News, will take place at the historic Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan and will help set the stage for a month with more than 15 primaries and caucuses across the US. Just two days after the next debate, the remaining Republican candidates will head to Kansas, Kentucky, Maine and Louisiana for primaries and caucuses on 5 March. Their attention will return to Michigan—along with Mississippi, Idaho and Hawaii–on 8 March.
Seven state wins on Super Tuesday placed Donald Trump well ahead of his competitors in the race for the party's nomination. The GOP frontrunner now has 319 delegates, ahead of Ted Cruz with 226, Marco Rubio with 110, John Kasich with 25 and Carson with 8.
Where and When
The post-Super Tuesday debate will be broadcast live at 9pm EST/2am GMT from the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan. The debate is hosted by Fox News, which has hosted two other Republican debates this election season, and will be moderated by Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has had issues with Kelly before for her tough questioning, going as far as to skip the last debate hosted by the network.
