South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott withdrew from the Republican presidential contest, which has gradually gotten smaller throughout the campaign season.

This withdrawal occurred after the third primary debate in early November.

Less than two months before the Iowa primaries, the remaining candidates are:

However, the latter two did not advance to the third debate round.

While former President Donald Trump, who is the front-runner in the Republican field based on polls from FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics, has refrained from participating in debates, several contenders have engaged in fierce competition in the three preceding debates in an attempt to close the support gap with Trump and set themselves apart on policy.

Requirements set by RNC for the fourth Republican debate

The Republican National Committee, or RNC, raised the bar for candidates wishing to participate in the debate stage before the fourth one.

According to the RNC news release, to appear at a podium in December, candidates must be polling at 6% or above in two national surveys or at 6% in one early state poll from two separate “carve out” states, which are listed as Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.

This is more than the 4% requirement that was set for the third debate that took place at the beginning of November.

Among other requirements, the polls must also survey at least 8,000 registered potential Republican voters.

Candidates must raise a minimum of 80,000 unique donors to their principal presidential campaign committee, with at least 200 unique donors in 20 or more states or territories each.

This contrasts with the previous debate, which required at least 70,000 unique donors.
