Tonight, Fox News will partner with Facebook to host two events featuring the 17 Republican presidential candidates: a forum for the seven lowest-polling candidates at 5pm ET, followed by a debate for the ten highest-polling candidates at 9pm ET.

The 5pm forum will feature Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum. The 9pm debate will include Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, and Scott Walker.

Our writers and editors will be covering the debates live on Twitter. For live coverage and analysis of tonight’s events, keep up with the hashtag #GOPDebate and follow:
