Yahoo News reports that the candidates for the debate will be cut short as Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and former technology executive Carly Fiorina will not be appearing in the Republican Party's presidential candidates face off, three weeks before Iowa's leadoff presidential caucuses. Both of these candidates were invited to participate in a 6 PM "undercard debate", but Paul refused, saying that he would not accept the second tier. Both Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum were also invited to appear in this undercard event.
