Fox News announced:

The Kelly File anchor will engage with the candidates individually on stage and ask them about their policies and where their campaigns stand after Tuesday night’s Nevada caucus and ahead of Super Tuesday.

The candidates that will be in attendance on Wednesday include, Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. John Kasich, who will join by remote while his campaign will be stationed in New Orleans, and Sen. Marco Rubio. This special event will also feature an interactive audience of Texas voters who will be able to pose questions to the candidates, each of whom will be on stage one at a time with Kelly.


CNNMoney reported Trump declined the invitation to participate because of another campaign commitment and the scheduling for the Kelly event was last-minute.
