Fox makes room for second-tier White House hopefuls

Workers prepare the stage for the Fox News/Wall Street Journal/South Carolina GOP debate on January 16, 2012 in Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaWith the number of Republicans in the 2016 White House race already in double digits, organizers have struggled to resolve how to give all candidates sufficient debate time in the campaign’s early months. After facing criticism for its decision to allow only the top 10 candidates to appear on stage for the first Republican debate, Fox News said Wednesday it will allow second-tier presidential hopefuls to hold a “candidate forum” ahead of the August 6 debate. The unusually large number of declared and probable candidates for the 2016 election has caused a logistics nightmare for organizers, who are anxious to avoid a cacophony of voices while also giving opportunities for lesser-known candidates to have their say.
