The lineup for the first 2016 Republican presidential debate was unveiled Tuesday, with businessman Donald Trump leading the way followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry was the most prominent candidate to miss the cut for Thursday's 10-person prime-time debate in Cleveland. Six others will join him in a second forum that will take place before the prime-time debate.
Fox News determined the participants by taking an average of five recent national polls of likely Republican voters. The first Fox debate will start at 5 p.m. ET, followed by the main debate at 9 p.m.
