Report from Fox News:

Fox News Channel will present a crucial Republican presidential debate on Thursday – live from Detroit’s Fox Theater – just days before Michigan voters make their choice.

Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace will return to moderate the two-hour forum, which starts at 9:00pm ET on Fox News Channel and will be streaming live on FoxNews.com.

You can also listen live on Fox News Radio and watch live via Fox News Go.

Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich will face off for the first time after the important Super Tuesday contests.

This debate will be the third presented by Fox News of the 2016 campaign. It comes just ahead of key primary votes in Michigan on March 8, and Florida and Ohio on March 15.

The previous two GOP debates were the highest-rated telecasts in the network’s history – with August’s debate garnering a record-breaking 24 million viewers.

“There’s a lot to talk about. There are questions we’ve been working on that haven’t been asked. And likely there are going to be some fireworks,” Bret said.

I expect the attacks on Donald Trump to continue, especially given how it seemed to have an impact on his Super Tuesday performance if you examine the polling. He under-performed polls in several states which means the polls were wrong, or the attacks from Rubio and Cruz have eroded some of his support. I suspect a combination of both.

We’ll have the full debate video after it airs.


  1. Nate: “The festivities begin at 9pm…” — good one!

    Watch the Megyn-travesty regurgitate the upcoming Romney attack on behalf of the dying-as-we-watch GOP Establishment…by excusing her ugliness with: “I’m only asking what Mitt said…”!

    Romney who…? Wasn’t he recalled to stand back in his proper place at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum…?

  2. The arrogance of Fox News to put up the same team again for this debate when such a turmoil took place the last time. Fox News part time anchor Anna Kooiman was at the debate hall this morning where she mentioned that the RNC only gave out 50 tickets to the public…all the rest was to donors, political reps,associates (just what Trump complained about in the last few debates). Lots of Boos may be had again when Trump speaks and if that happens, Trump should walk off the stage in protest.

    • If they were smart, Fox would just arrange to have Kelly ask questions only to other candidates. They could make it less obvious by having her ask another candidate a question and then ask for Trump’s response. But they should not let her attack Trump directly. If they were smart.
