MEGYN KELLY: Set to ‘Quiz’ GOP Candidates at Next Event and Guess Who isn’t Showing Up

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 5.54.29 PMWhy does the FOX network keep pushing Megyn Kelly on us? Honestly…

Donald Trump will again be skipping a Fox News event hosted by Megyn Kelly.

This afternoon the network announced that four of the five Republican candidates would be participating in a special edition of the Kelly File in Texas this Wednesday on the eve of the next GOP debate.

Trump, a Fox News rep confirmed, was invited, but declined due to a scheduling conflict.

With Super Tuesday, at that point, less than a week away, Trump will likely be in another state before heading to Houston for Thursday night’s debate.

The four other candidates, however, are making it happen.

Sen. Ted Cruz, who’s expected to do well in his home state of Texas on Super Tuesday, will be on hand.

Sen. Marco Rubio and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson will make it to the venue too.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich planned to be in New Orleans, as he’s hoping to pick up votes there when Louisiana goes to the polls on March 5, five days after Super Tuesday.

He’s participating anyways and will be beamed in.

Like the other recent town hall formats, the candidates will be quizzed individually, instead of standing all onstage like the debates.

Fox is having Texans join Kelly on stage to directly ask questions of the four hopefuls.

This now marks the second time Trump has refused to face his antagonist, the blonde Fox News host.
