CLEVELAND, Ohio — There are 17 declared presidential candidates and only room for 10 in the prime time debate that will take place Thursday night in Cleveland.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace will be one of the moderators during the main debate.

The others seven candidates will participate in a separate debate at 2 p.m. moderated by Fox News’ Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum.

“We think we’re ready to go,” Hemmer told Fox 8 News in the Morning. “I don’t think it’s going to be easy, but I don’t think running for president should be.”

The two said they would make sure to hold the candidates’ feet to the fire. They’ve been planning the debate for months, and MacCCallum said the night should be like “a big Super Bowl.”

“It’s going to be a really fun night for politics,” she said.
