Five days before Republicans vote in key primary states like Florida and Ohio, the four remaining candidates will face off Thursday evening for a crucial debate in Miami.

Hosted by CNN, Salem Media Group, The Washington Times, and the Republican National Committee, the debate will be held at the University of Miami, beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET. CNN anchor Jake Tapper will moderate and his colleague Dana Bash, Salem talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, and The Washington Times' Stephen Dinan will ask additional questions.

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump will participate, along with his three remaining rivals: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. This debate is considered heavily important at this moment in the primary, as losses for Trump in Florida and Ohio (home states to Rubio and Kasich, respectively) could cost him a secure nomination and could potentially result in a brokered convention.

The debate will air live on CNN, CNN International, and CNN en Español. Those without access to cable news can live-stream the event on and on the network's mobile and streaming app CNNGo. Cable authentification is not required for any of those options.

Salem Radio Network will be the exclusive terrestrial radio provider for the debate; satellite radio subscribers can follow along on SiriusXM channel 116.
