HOW THEY QUALIFIED: ABC used the following criteria to determine how the participants were chosen: 1) placed among the top three finishers in the Iowa caucuses; or 2) placed among the top six in an average of national polls; or 3) placed among the top six in an average of New Hampshire polls.

THE LATEST: ABC News has eliminated the undercard debate. This means Fiorina and Gilmore, who did not meet the debate criteria, will not participate at all.
