CNBC Announces Debate Lineup — Here Are the Four Candidates Who Didn't Make Cut to Be on Main Stage


CNBC on Wednesday announced the lineup for the next Republican presidential debate set for next week.

On the main stage: Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio.

Four candidates, however, failed to make the cut to appear at the 8 p.m. ET debate. They will instead be at the "happy hour" debate scheduled for 6 p.m. ET.

Those candidates are: Bobbie Jindal, Rick Santorum, George Pataki, and Lindsey Graham.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story accidentally excluded Donald Trump. It has since been amended to reflect that he will be on the main debate stage.
