NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential hopefuls are gathered in North Charleston to debate before voters in this early primary state go to the polls.

On Thursday, GOP candidates are participating in two debates being sponsored by Fox Business Network at the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center.

The network says candidates who place in the top six nationally based on an average of recent polls are invited to take part in the prime-time debate slated to begin at 9 p.m. and moderated by Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo.

Remaining candidates who register at least one percent according to the network’s polling standards were invited to participate in an earlier debate moderated by Trish Regan and Sandra Smith.
