Here’s a quick rundown on all the details of tonight’s Republican presidential debate.

Republican candidates Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are set to be the only four candidates on the debate stage in Detroit.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said Wednesday he would not attend the debate and sees no “path forward” for his campaign, but did not formally drop out of the race.

The debate, hosted by Fox News, is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. ET at the Fox Theater in Detroit and last for two hours. Fox News anchors Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace are slated to moderate the debate.

The debate comes before a slew of contests in Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, and Kentucky on Saturday, Puerto Rico on Sunday, and Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan, and Mississippi on Tuesday.
