CBS News Reveals Details for Its GOP Debate

Even though the CBS event is only 12 days away, it’s not the next Republican debate, as ABC’s face-off is scheduled for Feb. 6

You’re in luck if you’ve got room for another GOP debate.

CBS News has announced plans for its Feb. 13 Republican showdown at the Peace Center in Greenville, S.C. “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson will moderate the event, with CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett and The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel joining as panelists.

The debate kicks off at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET and will also stream on CBS News’ 24/7 digital news network, CBSN. CBS’ Republican presidential candidates’ debate is the final outing for candidates before the key South Carolina primary.

Even though the CBS event is only 12 days away, it’s not the next Republican debate, as ABC’s GOP clash is scheduled for Feb. 6.

The key question is, who will be on the stage? Several candidates are expected to drop out of the race by the time the South Carolina primary rolls around and frontrunner Donald Trump famously skipped last week’s Fox News GOP debate.

Candidates and criteria for participation will be announced at a later date.
