Following Tuesday night's Fox Business Network and fourth Republican debate, during which candidates delved into key issues effecting the economy, the Republican presidential contenders won't face off again for more than a month — but they likely won't be sitting at home waiting patiently for the Dec. 15 debate in Nevada, hosted by CNN. 

Here's what you can expect from some of the top-polling candidates until then:

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: After another strong debate performance, Rubio's first order of business is to raise $1 million within the 72 hours after the debate. Dubbed "the Marco Million," the fundraiser has taken over the homepage of the candidate's site. 

On Wednesday, Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will visit a town hall meeting in Columbia, South Carolina. Rubio will later visit his new South Carolina campaign headquarters to celebrate its opening, the Post and Courier reported.

Rubio will also visit Miami on his campaign trail on Saturday.

Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson: Following a brief two-week break from his campaign to promote his book A More Perfect Union, Carson will be busy on his campaign trail until the next debate, stopping at cities in Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas and California through Dec. 4 for various fundraising luncheons and receptions.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: In the wake of what some say was another defeatist performance from Bush on Tuesday night, he'll set out on a few more campaign stops before the next debate, including one in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Dallas and Saddle River, New Jersey.

Business magnate Donald Trump: Aside from tweeting aggressive remarks against his opponents, Trump will visit Beaumont, Texas, on Saturday and Knoxville, Tennessee, on Nov. 16 for campaign rallies. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.

At n campaign event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Trump also promised to share his views on the ethanol mandate within the next few weeks, Politico reported, a mandate that seeks to reduce carbon emission and will likely benefit the ethanol industry in agricultural states.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz: After earning praise for his Fox Business Network debate performance, Cruz will make 10 stops on his campaign trail over the next several days, including a rally in Orlando, Florida, on Friday, a "meet and greet" at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, on Nov. 16 and the "South Carolina Rally for Religious Liberty" in Greenville, South Carolina on Saturday, hosted by the christian Bob Jones University. 

Tickets to his events are available on Eventbrite.
