The clock is ticking for GOP presidential candidates to get into the top ten spots to be included in Fox News' Republican presidential primary debate on Aug. 6.

On "Hannity" tonight, one of the anchors of that debate, Bret Baier, explained the criteria for how those top ten contenders will be chosen.

Baier said that candidates must be in the top ten of five national polls from major organizations.

The determination of who is on the stage will be announced at 6p ET on Tuesday, Aug. 4, he added.

For the candidates who don't make the cut, they will still have an opportunity to be on the stage and speak to Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum before the official debate.

"All of the candidates will be there in Cleveland, we expect," Baier said.

Baier also revealed how some of the candidates are currently doing in recent polls.
