After being in danger of falling to the undercard debate, Sen. Rand Paul narrowly made the cut for Tuesday's primetime Republican debate. CNN, which is hosting the debate in Las Vegas, announced the lineup on Sunday. Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Gov. John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, and Gov. Chris Christie will all participate in the primetime debate, which begins at 8:30 pm EST. Sen. Rick Santorum, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. Lindsey Graham and former New York Gov. George Pataki will face off in the undercard debate at 6 pm EST. Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore was once again left off, having failed to make any debate since the first one held this summer.
