Texas will be well represented in the first GOP presidential debate Thursday that’s being broadcast by Fox TV. But the Texan who led the state Republican Party for more than a decade didn’t make the cut.
As expected Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul- all raised in Texas -will be invited to the first debate being held in Cleveland. They’ve consistently polled in the top third of the 17 GOP candidates, and polling numbers were used to decide which 10 would be invited.
Austin-born Carly Fiorina didn’t make it.
