Fox News Ends Debate Suspense: Perry Out; Kasich In

Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry and two latecomers round out the kids' table.

Mercifully, Fox News has ended our long, painful wait and announced the 10-runners up for the GOP nomination. Anything crazy they say between now and Thursday is because they're crazy and not because they're vying for debate exposure.


The first prime-time debate of the Republican primary race on Thursday will include 10 candidates, according to Fox News:

Real estate mogul Donald Trump
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida
Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
Ohio Gov. John Kasich

Fox, which is hosting the debate in Cleveland, Ohio, announced the list of candidates on air at 6 p.m. ET Tuesday.
