Fox Business News, the hosts of tomorrow’s Republican debate, announced yesterday that Rand Paul and Carly Fiorina did not make the cut to be part of the main event and have been invited to join the undercard debate with Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.
Yes, Huckabee and Santorum are still staying in the race. Why not? It is not as if they have anything better to do with their lives. After all, every few weeks or so, they get to be on TV so that’s good.
Paul had earlier threatened to not take part if he was relegated and his campaign confirmed that he will carry through on that threat. Fiorina’s intentions are not clear. She started out in this process as part of the undercard so the demotion may not carry as much sting. Also she needs a forum to continue to spout her lies.
The main debate will now consist of Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Carson, Bush, Christie, and Kasich. This whole thing reminds me strongly of some kind of game show where we wonder who gets eliminated in each round.
