The debate on Wednesday will have a hard stop after two hours' time following a strongly-worded letter Trump and Carson penned to CNBC in mid-October, in which the candidates demanded they be allotted time for opening and closing remarks and that the debate not surpass a running time of two hours. Facing the withdrawal of the Republican party's two top-polling candidates, it didn't take long before CNBC agreed.
