The Republican National Committee (RNC) released the names of presidential candidates who qualify for Wednesday night’s debate, knocking former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson off the list.
Former President Donald Trump qualified but declined to attend.
The RNC announced that the debate will stream on Rumble and will air at 9 p.m. ET on Fox Business and Univision.
As the Washington Post noted, the RNC is “raising the threshold required to qualify for each successive debate.”
Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson responded to the news of his ouster by pledging to keep campaigning for president in Iowa and other early primary states like New Hampshire.
“I understand that the RNC and the media are trying to reduce the number of candidates, but I measure success based on the response I receive in early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire. My goal is to increase my polling numbers to 4% in an early state before Thanksgiving,” he said. “If that goal is met, then I remain competitive and in contention for either Caucus Day or Primary Day.”
