Fox News Channel announced Monday that it will host the final Republican presidential debate next month prior to the Iowa caucus.
The debate is scheduled for Thursday, January 28, four days before the February 1 caucus, at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, and will air at 9 p.m. Eastern.
But the real news is Fox News Channel’s choice of moderators. Fox News Channel anchors Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace with return from the August 6 debate gig to give it another go.
To say that GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump was less than pleased with Kelly’s performance as a moderator at the Republican debate kick-off would be an understatement.
The real estate developer railed for days after the debate about what he thought were unfair questions posed by Kelly, and to a lesser extent Wallace, in news interviews and on social media.
Fox News reported:
Fox News attracted a record 24 million viewers at the first debate, making it the highest-rated non-sports cable broadcast ever.
The announcement comes as the Republican primary field slowly thins, with South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham announcing Monday he is suspending his campaign.
But higher-polling candidates have shown no indication of backing out before Iowa, and it remains a historically broad field – still led by front-runner Donald Trump.
Fox Business Network also hosted one debate in November, and plans to host a second on Jan. 14 in South Carolina.
Watch the clip, where Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum and Larry Sabato, the director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, discuss the field of candidates.
