CNN has released the podium order for Thursday’s Republican presidential debate in Houston.
The order is as follows from left to right (facing the stage): Ben Carson, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Donald Trump (center), Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
The podium order was determined by the number of delegates awarded to each candidate through the first four nominating contests.
The debate, hosted by CNN, Telemundo and the Salem Media Group, will take place at the University of Houston.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer will moderate the debate, with Telemundo’s Maria Celeste Arraras, Salem’s conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt and CNN’s Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash asking the candidates additional questions at the debate.
