Fox News to Host January Republican Presidential Debate

Fox News will televise its second Republican presidential primary debate on Jan. 28, the network announced Monday.

The debate from Des Moines, Iowa will be the first for Fox News since its record-breaking Aug. 6 debate, which drew a network record 24 million viewers.

Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier, The Kelly File anchor Megyn Kelly and FOX News Sunday host Chris Wallace will return as moderators for the Jan. 28 debate, the last contest among the candidates before the Iowa Caucus on Feb. 1.

The criteria for candidate entry to the debate will be announced closer to the date. Following the debate, FNC will present special live daytime and primetime programming from Iowa in the days leading up to the Iowa Caucus, said the network.
