Tuesday's (November 10) Fox Business Network debate at the Milwaukee Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin will be the fourth installment of a series of Republican presidential debates before the GOP primary and decide its standard bearer to go against the Democrats in the race for the White House in 2016.
But before the year ends, there is still one Republican presidential debate to be hosted by CNN in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a sponsor of the debate, CNN is expected to broadcast the debate live and provide free live stream services as well.
Tuesday's Republican Presidential Debate Preview
Going into Tuesday's Republican presidential debate hosted by Fox Business News, moderators Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo have promised not to try to steal the limelight from the candidates with their commentaries and instead conduct the candidates in the follow-up performance.
The major criticism of the last debate hosted by CNBC were complaints that the moderators stole the show from the candidates by becoming argumentative instead of remaining objective in their questions. After days of piling on by competitors and some media personalities against CNBC, Tuesday will be the day that the next debate moderators must put their posturing where their mouth is.
"My goal is to make myself invisible. That I'm not the issue...That we're not the issue. The answers to what we're raising become the issue," Cavuto told Politico and added that he and Bartiromo have committed to do their research and stick to economic and business topics. "We're business journalists. We're nerds, we should embrace who we are, we want to stick to these subjects."
Bartiromo echoed Cavuto's statement and said, "After that [CNBC] debate, I realized, I knew my marching orders. It was clearer than ever what my marching orders are, and that is to help the viewer, help the voter better understand what each candidate's plan is; is it a realistic plan, can it work and how is it different from the next guy or gal, and that's what I plan to focus on."
The Week writes, "While the Republican debates have famously been a free-for-all this election season, there is at least one informal rule networks are now following: Don't be CNBC. On the heels of the widely criticized debate in late October, CNBC's competitors are already doing their part to distance themselves from the "soap opera" that unfolded when moderators asked what some believed were questions meant to provoke drama. On Tuesday, it will be up to Fox Business News' Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo to conduct the candidates in the follow-up performance."
This debate airs Tuesday night on the Fox Business Network at 9 pm ET, 6 pm PT. There will be an undercard debate earlier in the evening at 7 pm ET, 4 pm PT. We'll have more details Tuesday morning about live stream links and all the pertinent details you'll need.
