CNN – Salem Republican Debate Schedule – December 15, 2015

CNN Republican Debate

CNN Presidential Republican Debate With New Criteria This Time

The GOP candidates seem to be all set for next week’s CNN Republican Debate at The Venetian in Las Vegas. The big news has arrived yet again from the real estate magnate (and controversy magnet) Donald Trump, which reveals that his plea of $5 million payment to appear at the upcoming GOP debate sponsored by CNN has been declined by President Jeff Zucker.

The December 15 Republican Debate has a new approach of selecting the main stage candidates i.e. early state polling strength. The new criteria would need candidates to secure at least 3.5% in national polls and fulfill any of the two other requirements: at least 4% in Iowa state polls or at least 4% in New Hampshire state polls.

What to expect at the GOP Presidential Debate?

As per the next Republican Debate Schedule, this would be the fifth GOP Presidential Debate which CNN suggests as the “Commander in Chief” debate. The reason for this is the debate moderator who is known for his “foreign policy chops”. It’s pretty obvious that the contenders would be taking heavy blows of foreign policy questions at the debate.

For your information, this would be the first Republican debate post the aftermath of the November Paris attacks.

What date is the next GOP Presidential Debate happening?

This year’s last GOP Presidential Debate is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, December 15, 2015.

Where is the location for CNN/Salem Republican Debate?

The CNN/Salem Debate will be hosted at ‘The Venetian’ located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Nevada.

Where to watch GOP Presidential Debate online?

The Las Vegas GOP Debate can be live streamed online for free on the CNN websites. The network has been allowing free live streaming since its last hosted September Republican debate.

Which candidates are attending the CNN/Salem GOP debate

After filtering the White House hopefuls through CNN’s Dec 15 Republican Debate criteria, these candidates are likely to make the cut:

Main Stage (9)

Donald Trump

Ben Carson

Marco Rubio

Ted Cruz

Jeb Bush

John Kasich

Rand Paul

Carly Fiorina

Chris Christie

Undercard Stage (4)

Mike Huckabee

Rick Santorum

Lindsey Graham

George Pataki

While Christie has always scored more than 5% in the qualifying polls and more strongly in New Hampshire, Paul and Fiorina are the most in danger of slipping to the undercard segment. Talking about Jim Gilmore, it could be heartbreaking for him as he may just not qualify for either of the two stages.

Who are the moderators for CNN/Salem Presidential Debate?

CNN would go with the same questioners who participated in the previous hosted Reagan Library GOP debate with a change in the moderator selection.

Moderator : Wolf Blitzer (CNN news anchor)

Questioners : Dana Bash (CNN chief political correspondent) and Hugh Hewitt (conservative talk radio host)

Who are the sponsors for upcoming GOP Debate?

CNN would be preparing the stage for the Republican candidates with Salem Media Group as the co-sponsor alongside Facebook.

What time is the CNN/Salem debate today?

Although some Republicans were of the opinion to phase out the secondary debate, there would be a stage alive for the “1 percent” (undercard) candidates. The GOP debate time would be as follows:

Prime time : 9 pm ET

Secondary time : Yet to be announced

Fox Business-Wall Street Journal Republican Debate Schedule – November 10, 2015

Fox Business GOP DebateFox Business Swears to Host a Better GOP Debate than CNBC

Fox Business Network (FBN) and Wall Street Journal (WSJ) joint-hosted upcoming GOP Presidential Debate is slated to be held in Milwaukee, WI at the Milwaukee Theatre on Tuesday, November the 10th, 2015.

The big catch of this debate is the towering tension arising between the presidential candidates and Republican National Committee (RNC) over the debate structures. The RNC has terminated opening statements from the FBN Debate, and now the candidates will only get 30 seconds to deliver their closing statements. Likewise, the GOP hopefuls will get 90 seconds to answer each question of the moderators and 60 seconds to handle rebuttals.

What to expect at the GOP Presidential Debate?

“Real Debate with Real Questions.” Fox Business promised to cut away unneeded statements and put up a good show at the next GOP Debate than CNBC via a commercial. It was too easy for the next Republican debate host channel to step on the pedal of CNBC’s widespread criticism from both the RNC and presidential candidates, “CNBC never asked the real questions, never covered the real issues.”

The debate will hold its focus on the “economy and our future” theme throughout both the prime time and undercard contests.

What date is the next GOP Presidential Debate happening?

November 10, 2015 is the upcoming Republican Debate date scheduled as per the official announcement made by FBN and WSJ on October 27, 2015.

Where is the location for Fox Business/WSJ Republican Debate?

The Milwaukee Theatre in Milwaukee, WI will present the live action of the 4th Republican presidential debate.

Where to watch GOP Presidential Debate online?

The debate slated according to 2015’s next Republican Debate Schedule can be watched “live” on the authorized channels of FBN and

Which candidates are attending the Fox Business/WSJ GOP debate?

Prime time candidates : Republican candidates with an average score of 2.5% or more at the four Fox Business’s national polls conducted until November 4, 2015 should be through to the main stage 9 pm ET debate.

Undercard candidates : In order to be at least invited at the 6 pm ET contest, candidates scoring less than 2.5% will need to crack a minimum of 1% in any of the four Fox Business recognized polls conducted through November 4, 2015.

Who are the moderators for Fox Business/WSJ Presidential Debate?

Prime time moderators : FBN Managing Editor of Business News Neil Cavuto, Global Markets Editor Maria Bartiromo & WSJ’s Editor-in-Chief Gerard Baker.

Undercard moderators : FBN’s Sandra Smith, Trish Regan & WSJ’s Washington Bureau Chief Gerald Seib.

Special edition anchors : Lou Dobbs for Lou Dobbs Tonight, Neil Cavuto for CAVUTO: Coast to Coast & John Stossel for Stossel.

Who are the sponsors for upcoming GOP Debate?

FBN and WSJ have joined hands to hold the sponsorship for the Milwaukee Theatre Republican Debate Schedule.

Recently, Fox News had openly criticized CNBC on Twitter for their below par hosting performance at the University of Colorado Boulder (UCB) GOP Debate. In this event, FBN might feel a little pressurized to raise the bar in the next debate, though they seem to be confident.

What time is the Fox Business/WSJ debate today?

Unlike the CNBC presidential debate, the FBN/WSJ one will not have the danger of axing the undercard counterpart. The main debate will bring the top-tier candidates on stage at the “cream” time of 9 pm ET (8 pm CT, 6 pm PT) while the undercard candidates will have the less focused GOP Debate time of 6 pm ET (5 pm CT, 3 pm PT).

CNBC Republican Debate October 2015

Everything You Need to Know About Today’s GOP Debate Schedule

October 28, 2015 at University of Colorado Boulder (UCB) is what you should be looking at for the forthcoming Republican debate schedule of the CNBC. While we are in the midst of the presidential debates and, at the moment, everyone’s eyes are on the next debate schedule, there’s something you need to know about.

If the CNN GOP Presidential Debate was too “heated up” for you, especially with the “only candidate in dress” Carly Fiorina taking on the Republican front-runner Donald Trump, then the CNBC one would be more gripping for you.

What to expect at the GOP Presidential Debate?

The upcoming Republican Debate will follow the ‘economy’ theme where the candidates will debate on the key concerns of voters and rest of the citizens alike including employment, deficit, taxes, and obviously, the national economic health.

The debate bears the title ‘Your Money, Your Vote: The Presidential Debate on the Economy’.

Where is the location for CNBC GOP Debate?

Yes, listed by CNBC itself in the Top States for Business for 2010, Colorado will be under media lights on the big day.

CU-Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano said, “We have a long history at CU-Boulder of hosting high-profile visitors who bring exciting and engaging opportunities for our students and community to hear a variety of viewpoints. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with CNBC and feel this debate will be a memorable experience for our students and the entire community.

“We are delighted to host the first of the Republican presidential candidate debates to be held on a university campus.”

What time is the CNBC Debate?

8:00 pm ET is the time finalized i.e. the peak hours, may be the reason why this month’s debate was scheduled on the same hours. However, the discarding of the undercard debate being on the cards, the October GOP Debate time is likely to be set on the later hour.

Where to watch the next GOP Presidential Debate online?

Just as CNN’s initiative to make the last debate available for online users, CNBC too would probably be live streaming the October Republican Debate via its official website and apps. Nonetheless, you can also watch the debate using the live streaming portals of certain news websites.

It is but obvious that the viewers would be enthusiastic to watch live streaming of CNBC Republican Debate Online on the host’s main channel. Sister concern MSNBC too would be hosting the show as one of the CNBC Debate channels viz. TV Everywhere (authenticated clients only) on, smartphone apps, and Apple TV and CNBC PRO. The debate will also be broadcast live on SiriusXM channel 112 and Westwood One.

Which candidates are attending the CNBC GOP Debate?

Candidates for the next GOP Debate have been finalized said CNBC. However, the most interesting update comes from RNC which bids adieu to the ‘kiddie table’.

After the CNN Debate confessing “I think it looked like a pretty crowded stage last night,” Sean Spicer, spokesperson of RNC, believes there wouldn’t be an ‘undercard’ round for the next debate. Talking about Fiorina, her place in CNN Debate wasn’t sure under the network’s initial guidelines; she however made it, and was even successful to catch fire. Now after considering the last performance, her candidature for the upcoming CNBC Debate seems to be “sure-fire”.

CNBC Republican Debate Criteria / Rules

Rules/Criteria For Upcoming CNBC Republican Debate Schedule

Twist in the tale! Change in rules might put the CNBC Republican Debate Candidates on a roller coaster ride. To put it down in simple terms, candidates will need to score at least 3% in any of the CNBC recognized polls to hold on to the prime time debate stage. While for the undercard debate, they would need to push up at least 1% support in these polls.

Barely making to the 8 pm ET candidates list, Rand Paul would be thanking the cable network a million times for the roundup provision as he just reaches the 3% mark. Other most certain candidates according to the latest CNBC Republican Debate Criteria are: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Chris Christie, and Mike Huckabee.

Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum would likely be heading for the 6 pm ET podium with Lindsey Graham and Jim Gilmore seeming to struggle with the 1% threshold.

All of the polls to be conducted by NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, CNN, and Bloomberg will be released during the period: September 17, 2015 – October 21, 2015. The new CNBC Republican Debate Rules are expected not to lose focus of the Debate’s main discussion on job growth, taxes, technology, retirement, and national economy health.

How Do I Get CNBC Republican Debate Tickets?

How Do I Get Tickets For October 28 CNBC Republican Debate?

State affiliate Colorado Republican Party had made the CNBC Republican Debate tickets available on its official website via the page Debate Ticket Raffle from Monday, September the 14th to Wednesday, October the 14th. If you’re a student of the University of Colorado, Boulder and have missed to fill the online raffle entry form, you still have a chance to secure a ticket to attend next CNBC Republican Debate.

However, you must find yourself extremely lucky to grab a seat at CU’s Coors Events Center, the CNBC Debate location. While a release says the tickets are still getting finalized and more details (like CNBC Debate Ticket Price/Cost) are awaited to be posted on their website, CU has opened only “50” seats for students so far.

“It’s outrageous that the Republican Party has chosen to shut University of Colorado students out of the October presidential debate on their own campus,” said ProgressNow Colorado executive director Amy Runyon-Harms.

The media is already heated up with Republican Party’s decision of low student representation at the October GOP Debate. The question that still remains is — How will CU stand up to its liberal reputation and how much will be the role of student body at the Debate?

“It really feels like they don’t feel like our vote or input is important at all,” says a University of Colorado student. “It’s almost that they’re like ‘This is a private event, it doesn’t concern you.’”

CNBC Republican Presidential Debate Moderators

Who are the Moderators for October 28 CNBC Debate?

Top anchoring executives and a giant journalist of CNBC, Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick, and John Harwood would be the next CNBC Debate Schedule Moderators at University of Colorado, Boulder.

Carl Quintanilla, anchoring CNBC’s Squawk on the Street and Squawk Alley, holds tons of awards including the Emmy, RTNDA Edward R. Murrow and Peabody Award, under his belt. It would be an honor for the former The Wall Street Journal reporter to moderate the “Your Money, Your Vote” GOP Debate at the same university he passed his political science bachelor’s degree.

Becky Quick, who anchors Squawk Box and On the Money, is probably the quickest among CNBC’s newscasters. She earns a recognition for covering hard-hitting interviews and profiles of the globe’s most influential and affluent personages.

John Harwood is the Chief Washington Correspondent of CNBC who hosts CNBC Digital’s Speakeasy with John Harwood, a video series. He has had a strong connection with politics and journalism all his life, right from age 11.

The three CNBC Republican Presidential Debate Moderators would be joined by CNBC experts On-Air Editor Rick Santelli, Senior Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson and Mad Money host Jim Cramer. Other CNBC contributors viz. Joe Kernen, Kelly Evans, and Larry Kudlow are also appointed to share contribution along with the three October 28 CNBC Debate Moderators.

Where to Watch CNBC Debate Live on the Internet?

CNBC Republican Debate Live is probably going to be the most Googled term until the commencement of 2015’s Third GOP Debate. It’s obvious that the enthusiastic viewers would be live streaming the host’s main channel to watch the CNBC Republican Debate Online. Sister concern MSNBC too would be hosting the show as one of the CNBC Debate channels viz. TV Everywhere (authenticated clients only) on, smartphone apps, and Apple TV and CNBC PRO. The debate will also be broadcast live on SiriusXM channel 112 and Westwood One.

Apart from CNBC’s official website, the CNBC GOP Debate Live Streaming will also be made possible on YouTube as many channels would be using the opportunity to retain subscribers and score view counts.

If the CNBC channel gets overloaded with ‘n’ number of online users on the big day (which is most likely), you can still enjoy the CNBC Republican Debate aired live on other news or political websites.

The presidential campaigns are only getting more fascinating with each debate. The “Clinton-Sanders” show at the first Presidential Democratic Debate was a pure entertainer with the CNN channel. Now, you can imagine how riveting it would be when the trio — Donald Trump, Ben Carson & Carly Fiorina taking the prime time stage.
