Of the 24 candidates on the Republican ballot, 10 have agreed to participate in Project White House.
Only two candidates from each party will be part of the Tucson Weekly/Access Tucson/Project White House debate. The candidates will have to compete over the next two weeks for a spot in the televised debate.
