CNN Amends Debate Criteria, Fiorina May Get in

CNN Amends Debate Criteria, Fiorina May Get in

Tuesday, 01 September 2015 06:03 PM

CNN has changed its criteria for who qualifies for the next Republican presidential debate, giving former technology executive Carly Fiorina a better chance at appearing in the Sept. 16 prime-time affair.

The news network announced the change on Tuesday following weeks of public pressure from Fiorina and her supporters.

Fiorina is the only woman in the Republican field. She likely would not have been among the top 10 candidates on the debate stage on Sept. 16 as determined by national polling between July 16 and Sept. 10. The new terms would add any candidate who ranks in the top 10 in polling between Aug. 6 and Sept. 10 — a period that better reflects Fiorina's rise in the polls.

The final participants will be announced on Sept. 10.
