Fox has just announced the 10 candidates who made the cut for the GOP debate Fox will host on Thursday, 6 August, from 9-11 PM EDT.  The next tier candidates will have their own debate at 5 PM EDT on Thursday.

Here are the top 10, in order by the latest polling numbers:

1.  Donald Trump

2.  Jeb Bush

3.  Scott Walker

4.  Mike Huckabee

5.  Ben Carson

6.  Ted Cruz

7.  Marco Rubio

8.  Rand Paul

9.  Chris Christie

10. John Kasich

Rick Perry is reportedly #11.

Trump will be in the center slot on stage, flanked by Bush and Walker. For whatever that may portend.   A little startling to see Huckabee so high up at this point.

Let the wild rumpus begin.
