The NYTimes reports the candidates will also be allowed 30-second closing statements, said the memo, which was obtained by The New York Times and confirmed by Fox Business Network.
The memo comes in the wake of Wednesday evening’s CNBC debate, which angered the Republican National Committee and the candidates, for what they said was the combative tone of the questions, which party officials said did not focus on the economy as much as they had expected from a business news network.
The main-stage debate will be moderated by Fox Business Managing Editor Neil Cavuto and Global Markets editor Maria Bartiromo, along with Wall Street Journal editor-in-chief Gerard Baker.
On Tuesday, November 10th, coverage will kick off at 5PM/ET with a special edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight featuring pre-debate news and analysis with host Lou Dobbs leading up to the 6PM/ET debate. Dobbs will then toss to Regan, Smith and Seib as they commence the first debate, which will run from 6:00PM-7:30 PM/ET, followed by another special edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight (7:30-9PM/ET).
