Fox News Published Debate Rules

With only six days remaining until the first GOP primary debate, Fox News has released some preliminary guidelines for what we should expect to see.

The lineup on-stage will feature candidates according to their polling numbers just ahead of the debate, which means at present Donald Trump has control of center stage. The lowest polling candidates will be on the wings.

Each candidate will have one minute to answer questions posed to them by Fox debate moderators Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier.

Moderators may also specifically address candidates for additional input for 30 seconds and may allow rebuttals to candidates who are referred to in others’ answers.
